If I were nominated for a Grammy, I’d probably celebrate by launching myself down a champagne-lubricated Slip ‘N Slide or telling everyone to “suck it.” You know, Normal people stuff. Sam Smith has something else in mind.
MTV News caught up with the “I’m Not The Only One” singer at 102.7 KIIS FM’s annual Jingle Ball over the weekend to ask him how he feels about his six Grammy nominations, which includeAlbum Of The Year and Best New Artist.
Unfortunately, the 22-year-old Brit will not be celebrating his noms any time soon: “I’ve got to get on, like, a plane in, like, five hours time,” he said. “Yeah, I’ve got to sleep.”
But, despite what sounds like a grueling, energy-sapping schedule, Sam’s still plenty excited over his potential Grammy wins next year: “My music being successful in America was one thing, and then to have the most nominations in something that I watch every single year, so passionately, is unreal.”
Smith is up for Best New Artist, Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for In The Lonely Hour and Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for “Stay With Me (Darkchild Version).”
The 57th Annual Grammy Awards will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015.
