Grammys 2015: Sam Smith Tells Man He Fell In Unrequited Love With, 'Thank You For Breaking My Heart'

Sam Smith had a massively successful night at his first ever Grammys on Sunday, and couldn't help addressing his past detractors during his acceptance speeches.

ALL THE PICTURES:

The British singer was the biggest winner of the night, taking home some of the most coveted awards of the evening, including Best New Artist and Record Of The Year.

After finding out early in the proceedings that he’d been awarded Best New Artist, presented by his friend, Taylor Swift, Sam made a pretty understated speech, saying: “Oh my gosh I’ve got to try and say something without crying. I won a Grammy! Thank you!”

Little did he know, he would be collecting a further three awards as the night went on.

Sam Smith collects his first Grammy

He had a message for his fans when he collected his second award for Best Pop Vocal Album, telling them that he had only found commercial success when he stopped trying to be something he wasn’t.

Sam explained: “Before I made the record I was doing everything to try and get my music heard. I tried to lose weight and I was doing awful music. But it was only when I started being myself that the music to flow, and people started to listen.”

MORE GRAMMYS:

Later in the evening, he addressed the man he’d fallen in unrequited love with years earlier in a speech, telling him, on live TV: “This is is the best night of my life.

“I want to thank the man who I fell in love with last year, who my record is about. Thank you so much for breaking my heart… because you got me four Grammys.”

Other big winners on the night included Beck, who received two awards, but had his thunder stolen somewhat when Kanye West stormed the stage in faux outrage.
