Surprise at Ed Sheeran's (32) performance in Detroit: The British singer-songwriter brought US rapper Eminem (50) to the stage in his hometown. Sheeran posted a video evidence of the performance on Instagram. "Detroit. What a moment," wrote the Brit.

It doesn't stop with one song. The two then play "Stan" from Eminem's 2000 album "The Marshall Mathers". Ed Sheeran sings the chorus, which originally consists of a sample from a song by Dido (51).

"Detroit, I missed you," Eminem calls out on stage. The rapper grew up here under difficult circumstances, he is currently said to live in a wealthy suburb of Motorstadt.
