By year's end, Sheeran had officially taken North America by storm. Rolling Stone applauded the 21-year-old singer/songwriter in their coverage of Z100's annual Jingle Ball extravaganza at New York's Madison Square Garden, writing that his "imprint was felt throughout the night... Screams greeted every mention of his name; his time on stage was accompanied by much yelling as well." USA Today and People both heralded Sheeran as one of the new year's brightest lights, while Billboard officially declared him to be "the breakout star of 2013," noting that "his distinct live shows... have helped him build a loyal audience -- not to mention earn screams loud enough to rival Bieber's and One Direction's."
