  • All eyes on British newcomer Sam Smith at Grammy Awards
    All eyes on British newcomer Sam Smith at Grammy Awards Sun, Feb 8, 2015

    By Piya Sinha-Roy LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - In a sea of pop music's leading ladies at Sunday's Grammy Awards, all eyes are on British newcomer Sam Smith with six nominations amid speculation that he could emulate Adele's 2012 sweep at the ceremony. "I don't think it takes a massive crystal ball to think that it's going to be Sam Smith's night," said Lyndsey Parker, editor of Yahoo Music. Much like Adele, who swept the Grammys with six wins, Smith, 22, is nominated in the night's top three categories for record, album and song of the year, after his debut album "In The Lonely Hour" stormed the U.S. charts last year, led by his soulful song "Stay With Me." Smith faces competition from some of pop's biggest names, namely R&B singer-producer Pharrell, who also has six nods including three for album of the year that includes his production work on Beyonce and Ed Sheeran's records. Smith and Pharrell will perform alongside a slew of chart-topping female singers including Ariana Grande and Rihanna, who will perform with Paul McCartney and Kanye West. More »
