Yes! This kid?
He was great! I wish I had gotten a picture with him. So cute.
Here’s a funny story about the Baby Ed I met in Nashville. I was hanging out with redpenguinninja and her friend Ashley, and we saw this redheaded guy outside the arena dressed in a hoodie and jeans and big sneakers - very similar to how Ed often dresses - and a lot of people were taking photos with him. So we thought it would be fun to get a picture with him too, just for the laughs, you know? So we go over and get pictures with him and mention how he looks like Ed or whatever, and then he, very seriously, goes, “Oh, you don’t recognize me?” And Ashley goes, “Should we?” And he’s like, “Well, this is awkward…”
Turns out everyone was getting photos with this guy not because he was dressed like Ed, but because he was a contestant on X Factor.
His name is Chase Goehring, and he’s actually covered some of Ed’s songs before on youtube. You can check out his channel [here]. :)
