YouTube Ed Sheeran and Elton John Grammy Awards 2013: Watch LIVE

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards is off to a fantastic start with performances as Ed Sheeran and Elton John kick it off, singing Ed's original song, "A Team."

The song is already fantastic, but with Elton's classic vocals and the guitar-piano duo? I would be lying if I didn't say I had chills the entire time!

This simple performance focusing on vocals, guitar and piano prove that it's not always about pyrotechnics and back-up dancers. It's about the music, the voices, and the talent.

This stripped down performance, the clashing of new and old school, gives new meaning to the "A Team," beyond just the song title. 

A+, Ed & Elton.
