Sam Smith might have taken home the Oscar for best original song on Sunday but the artist wasn’t overly excited by his own performance that night, claiming his singing was horrible.
On his way into the Vanity Fair party after winning for the Spectre theme “Writing’s on the Wall“, beating favourite “Til It Happens to You” by Lady Gaga and Diane Warren, Sam Smith told BBC radio station 5 Live that the Oscars performance was the worst moment of his life. “I hated every minute of it, I was so nervous,” Smith added.
What do people have to say about the performance?
The multiple Grammy winner also has an idea for who should sing the theme song for the next 007 film. “The Spice Girls,” he joked. Smith also mentioned that having now claimed the Oscar, after finishing off some amazing couple of years for the Brit, it would only go “downhill” from here. “I’m going to retire, I’m done with music!” he teased.
However, he might not be done with music yet but he sure is done with social media for a while after the controversy over his inaccurate statement to be the first openly gay Oscar winner, which isn’t true.
Later on, Sam Smith apologised for his fallacious claim, explaining that he was trying to “shine some light on the LGBT community” who he loves very much.
