UK crooner Sam Smith recently took over the Ellen Tube with a performance of “Lay Me Down” from his acclaimed In The Lonely Hour LP live on The Ellen Show. His performance of the weeping ballad follows a banner year in 2014, a record-setting six Grammy nods and some impressive writing on The London Sessions LP from Mary J. Blige. True to form, Smith delivers another spot-on performance in the clip. He closes his set with a birthday gift for Ellen.
