Hundreds of fans have lined up for hours to get a glimpse of pop star Ed Sheeran performing in a Melbourne laneway.

The English singer played his hit song Perfect at Hosier Lane on Monday morning for a live cross to the iHeartRadio Music Awards in America, with selected fans invited to attend.

"I didn't get to go to his concert, so to get to see him here was so lucky," Ariana Rigazzi told AAP after queuing for two hours.
