Lewis Capaldi Was Mistaken For a Seat-Filler at the Grammy Awards and His Response Is Hilarious

Oops! Despite getting a personal shout-out from host Alicia Keys early in the evening, it appears Lewis Capaldi was hilariously confused for a seat-filler at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Jan. 26).   

During the telecast, the British singer-songwriter took to social media to live-tweet the awkward interaction. "A lady at the grammys has just come up and offered to take my seat because she thought I was one of the people who sits in the chairs to fill them when someone gets up to use the bathroom," he wrote alongside a series of laughing emojis. 

Capaldi was up for song of the year for his No. 1 hit "Someone You Loved," which topped the Billboard Hot 100 back in November, but lost to Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy" in the 18-year-old superstar's record-tying sweep of the night's Big Four categories.
