Ed Sheeran's cameo appearance on "Game of Thrones" has garnered mixed reactions from critics.

The scene, which appeared on GOT's season 7's premier on Sunday, sees Arya stumble upon a gang of wayward soldiers in the woods, sitting around a campfire being serenaded by Sheeran.

"It's a pretty song, I've never heard it before," Arya tells Sheeran.

"It's a new one," he replies, before his men invite her to join them for a meal.

While many have praised Sheeran for his brief performance in the show, his performance has also garnered a fair amount of criticism from fans who took to social media to berate the singer.

"Game of Thrones" creators, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, first announced Sheeran's appearance earlier this year.

"For years we were trying to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it,” they told Screencrush.

Sheeran joins a growing list of musicians to appear in the show.

"Past seasons have featured sly cameos from musicians including Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody, Coldplay's Will Champion and Sigur Ros," reported Billboard.com.

However, it seems as if the singer and songwriter's appearance in Sunday's season premier is said to have been one of the biggest chart-topping names.

Sheeran's musical career boasts a number of accolades however his roots come from humble beginnings. The performer started singer at age 4, when he joined his local church choir in Framlingham, Suffolk, according to the website Ed Sheeran The A Team.

Later he took up guitar and began writing his own material, recording his first EP release, "The Orange Room," in 2008.

Three years later Sheeran moved to London to launch his career and eventually join Atlantic Records.
