Greg James was on a mission, can he find a robot to replace Ed Sheeran?
To celebrate Ed’s hotly anticipated comeback, we teamed up with his record label and 15 mechanical machines from the Manchester Robot Orchestra to perform Ed’s song ‘Shape of You’.
After an intense period of rehearsing and robot coding, the scene was set for this unique performance at the BBC’s legendary Maida Vale studios.
It was the biggest show of their robotic lives – but did any of them blow a fuse?!
