The Grammys stayed with Sam Smith throughout the 57th awards show Sunday in Los Angeles.
“Thank you all for the best night of my life” remarked a grateful Smith as he took home four top awards: best new artist, song of the year and record of the year for Stay with Me, and best pop vocal album for In the Lonely Hour.
“Before I made this record I was doing everything to try and get my music heard,” Smith said. “I tried to lose weight and I was making awful music. It was only until I started to be myself that the music started to flow and people started to listen.”
Album of the year and best rock album went to Beck’s Morning Phase, and Kanye West faked going up to the stage to join him a la his infamous Taylor Swift incident.
Beck played off it well. “I need some help. Come back!” the singer quipped to begin his acceptance speech.
“We made this record at my house for the most part so I’d like to thank my kids for letting me keep them awake a little bit extra longer.”.. see more
