Ed Sheeran has made one Kiwi superfan's dreams come true after he welcomed her on stage at his concert in Wellington last night.

The "special moment" happened when the pop star admitted he’d forgotten the lyrics to his hit song 'Galway Girl.'

Sheeran asked concert-goers if anyone knew the words and could help him sing the song - at which point Pippa Guerin put her hand up and was plucked from the crowd.

The pair then began singing together, with the British singer-songwriter dancing around the stage as he played the guitar.

After their duet, Sheeran put his arm around Pippa and kissed her on the head before sending her back to her seat and calling for the crowd to applaud her.

The 10-year-old from Palmerston North had travelled for the concert with several members of her extended family, and they were seated about three rows back from the stage.

It was her first concert.

Sheeran is currently touring Australia and New Zealand, with two more shows scheduled in Auckland.
