6) Ed Sheeran – Lego HouseFew would argue that 2011 was Ed Sheeran's year. With an honesty that made his music irresistible to music fans all over the United Kingdom, Ed proved himself to be a breath of fresh air in a musical climate populated mostly by hip-hop and R&B. Ed's folk-inspired songs mixed with influences from his urban contemporaries gave his melodic ballads a fresh spin.
It wasn't an overnight success - Ed was on his grind from age 14, when he released his first EP, The Orange Room EP. Five years later, in 2010, he posted a video on SB.TV, which led to grime and hip-hop artists taking notice. Ed built up a following and started collaborating with Example, Wiley, Devlin and Sway.
But Ed quickly became a star in his own right, not to mention number 8 on the list of top 2011 Facebook trends. His videos infamously don't feature much of the man himself, but Lego House cleverly styles Rupert Grint to look like Ed. Enjoy.
