Sam Smith's eye had a tad more twinkle during his Grammys performance of "Stay With Me" on Sunday night (Feb. 8). Not only had he just won Best New Artist, but he also nabbed the top spot with Best Pop Vocal Album. And he got to share the stage with his musical soulmate Mary J. Blige.
Smith took to the spotlight with a confident strut, surrounding himself with the classiest of orchestral ensembles. Lights were dimmed, gospel singers slayed and Blige took Sam's hand, giving the heartbreaking song an extra emotional touch.
The Brit crooner co-wrote two songs on Blige's 2014 album, London Sessions, including the lead single "Right Now" with Disclosure. (Disclosure's own song with Blige, "F For You," lost Best Dance Recording to Clean Bandit tonight.) Blige has also hopped on "Stay With Me," a song that has helped Smith gain six nominations for the night.
