Sam Smith Stuns VMAs With Gorgeous, No Frills Performance
There was no twerking, no jokes about jumping into the arms of your backup dancers -- in fact, the weirdest thing about his performance was that Kim Kardashian West introduced him in an outfit that showed the majority of her chest.
Smith just parked behind his mic and crooned his hit single -- no lip-syncing for this guy -- with grace and ease. As much as we tune into the VMAs for unexpected moments and insane performances, you gotta appreciate a voice of his caliber delivering a perfect song with no frills, just talent.
Forget the male Adele thing -- he's his own artist.
