Sam Smithcouldn't believe it and we couldn't either. In record speed (four months after initially donning OKP's First Look Friday badge), the wunderkind crooner was invited to bring his superpowers to the masses on this week's episode of SNL hosted by Louis C.K. As promised Smith delivered in showcasing his unprecedented range of vocals with two cuts off his forthcoming debut. Justifying his Artist to Watch coronation to the max, Smith brought the church out to Studio 8H as he performed "Stay With Me" with a full string section and choir in tow before stripping down for a piano ballad rendition of "Lay Me Down." Look out for In The Lonely Hour May 26th on Capitol Records. In the meantime watch Sam Smith on SNL below.
