The 21-year-old singer duetted with the legendary musician for a rendition of his hit 'The A Team' at the awards show earlier this month but admits he got an attack of stage fright when he walked out in front of the star-studded audience.
However, Elton, 65, put Ed at ease by making a gag about flashing his willy to try and relax him.
Ed recalled: "I knew I was not going to win at the Grammys so I was focusing on the performance. In the rehearsals it was fine but when I got onto the stage and there was a lot of people watching I was kind of a bit nervous. Then Elton called me over and said, 'This is the worst time to get your penis out.' That completely threw all of my nerves and I just played."
