Sam Smith on Oscars performance- “I hated every minute of it.”

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.

The latest pop moment to be dragged under the music-scope is Fifth Harmony’s new single “Work From Home”. The Ty Dolla $ign assisted anthem is giving us a taste of their sophomore album “7/27″ which is set for arrival on May 20th. The X Factor US alumnae are ready to put in some serious work as it is shown in their new video that accompanies the single.

“Work From Home”-which is reminiscing to the group’s biggest single up to date “Worth It” erupts as pop radio’s most added song in the United States. But is it a HIT or a MISS?  Although there is another “work” song playing on the radio (Rihanna’s new single “Work”) there might be room for another one.

Fifth Harmony’s latest tune is both catchy and energetic, featuring the girls’ amazing harmonies. The song has a chilled out vibe especially the chorus that has something infectious about the way the girls chant “work” over and over again. Halfway through the track, Ty Dolla $ign comes in to spice up the tempo and offer a smooth verse.

Speaking of lyrics, the track has some very adult undertones. “Let’s put it into motion / Imma give you a promotion / I’ll make it feel like a vacay / Turn the bed into an ocean,” is just one example of the song’s cheeky lyrics.

The accompanying video features Fifth Harmony all grown up, in their sexiest form so far. The girls are running a construction site, doing serious heavy duty lifting and flirting with a bunch of barely dressed men. Dinah Jane Hansen, Camila Cabello, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei and Lauren Jauregui are on fire, looking better than ever whilst showing off their killer dance moves.

It is interesting to witness the evolution of 5H. From the breakup anthem “Miss Movin’ On” to the number one hit “Worth It”, these ladies are full of surprises and ready to conquer their position at the top of the charts.
