Ed Sheeran has been awarded more than $1 million in legal costs stemming from his plagiarism lawsuit over the hit song "Shape of You".

Sheeran and his two co-writers, Steve McCutcheon and Johnny McDaid, had been locked in legal battle for years with Sami Chokri and Ross O'Donoghue, a pair of songwriters who claimed that the 2017 mega-hit ripped off their track "Oh Why."

Sheeran won his suit in April, with a judge ruling that he "neither deliberately nor subconsciously copied" "Oh Why" while writing "Shape of You."

And on Tuesday, a judge shut down Chokri and O'Donoghue's push to have Sheeran and his team pay for their own legal costs.
