Sam Smith grabbed his second Grammy Award of the night in what was arguably one of the hardest categories: Best Pop Vocal Album. Going up against Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry and Coldplay, Smith's name was called yet again as he took home gold for his smash debut, In The Lonely Hour.
And... after planting kisses on Katy and Rihanna's cheeks on his way up to the stage to accept the gramophone from pop legend Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees and early winners Pentatonix, Smith, 22, imparted some very sage advice to all the young aspiring pop singers out there.
"I just want to say that before I made this record I was doing everything to try and get my music heard," said Smith, who took home Best New Artist earlier in the broadcast. "I tried to lose weight and I was making awful music and it was only until I started to be myself that the music started to flow and people started to listen."
Katy approved, looking on with a gentle smile and clapping for Sam's inspiring speech. "Thank you guys for accepting me to be just me."
