And paid tribute to the Scots hitmaker as he performed his hugely popular song Someone You Loved.
He wrote: “Me playing Ed Sheeran to my parents when I was 13 Ed Sheeran playing my song to 20,000 people all these years later.”
Ed paid tribute to his pal Lewis again tonight in Glasgow by covering one of his songs in a full circle moment.
And revealed that his video inspired him to sing Small Bump again on tour.
After playing the tune, he said: “I though I’d drop that in, in Manchester on the first run of this tour.
“Lewis then put a video together of him covering a song by me when he was 13 and how this sort of flipped from him covering me to me covering him.
“He played my song Small Bump and I was like ‘I have no played that in years and years and years’ so I’d love to play it tonight.”
The crowd then cheered as he started to play Small Bump.
But the singer made a blunder during the song, admitting: “I haven’t played it for so long I f***** it up.”
Someone You Loved was Lewis’s breakout track and topped the UK charts for seven weeks in 2019.
The singer’s humour and candour have endeared him to fans around the world.
His meteoric rise to the top of the pop pile is documented in new Netflix film Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now.
Lewis said of the project: “When I saw the first cut I thought it looked like a film where I die at the end.
“Luckily things turned around and, as far as I’m aware, I don’t die at the end of this.
“It’s pretty vulnerable. There’s a lot of things in the film that were beginning to be resolved that are now resolved.
“It was a wake up call seeing the first draft. I was approached about it in 2019.
“Things were going well, I hadn’t noticed a twitch affecting my life and my anxiety was under control.
“Someone You Loved had been big and the album had done well and I thought the documentary would be the coolest.
“I had these big shows booked for 2020 and I thought I’d look the business.
“Then Covid and all the rest of it happened and it became quite an intimate thing.”
