Ed Sheeran is known for collaborating with the world’s most successful musicians – but Delta Goodrem isn’t one of them.
The Australian singer, 34, invited Ed, 28, to perform a duet with her during the upcoming finale of The Voice, but he declined.
The Shape of You star didn’t reject the offer personally, instead getting his longtime manager to deliver the bad news.

Stuart Camp, who has represented Ed since he was an unknown singer-songwriter in England, told Delta that the duet was simply ‘not an option’.
He confirmed that Ed was a fan of Delta’s music, but he won’t be in Australia for The Voice grand finale next month.
This is because he isn’t doing any promotion whatsoever for his new album, a selection of duets with high-profile artists.

The highly-anticipated new LP will feature the likes of Justin Bieber, Camilla Cabello, Cardi B, Travis Scott and Eminem.

Earlier this month, English singer Jess Glynne made a surprise appearance during the blind auditions.
She put her talents to the test by singing her own song I’ll Be There to the judges, Boy George, Kelly Rowland, Guy Sebastian and Delta.
Kelly looked visibly surprised when Jess began her ‘audition’, seemingly recognising her distinctive voice.
Once the chorus kicked in, all four of the coaches pressed their buttons and spun around simultaneously.

In July 2017, The Voice added some star power to its grand finale with a pre-recorded performance from Katy Perry.
Rather embarrassingly, they had billed it as a ‘live television event’, despite the fact Katy had filmed the performance earlier in the afternoon.
Channel Nine was left red-faced when the U.S. singer was pictured catching a flight at Sydney Airport at the same time as her ‘live’ concert that evening.
