But you bet I can say otherwise for little Kai—he’s an Ellen favorite since he’s somewhat regular guest on the Ellen show, and an amazing performer/singer. He first appeared as a 5-year-old singing “Roar”. Ellen loved him, as did her audience, and he was asked back to cover Bruno Mars. He appeared again, singing “Cake by the Ocean” and once again wowed the crowd with his passionate performance.

He recently returned to Ellen’s stage, this time as a much more mature 8-year-old to cover Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”. Kai has a better voice than I ever had, but his true gift is his undeniable stage presence. This time, as he sings, the crowd begins to cheer. What Kai doesn’t know is that it’s because Ed Sheeran is there, waiting right behind Kai to surprise him.

Watch Kai’s awesome performance and the heartwarming surprise that Ellen has for him. Please like and share this fun video!
