Throughout the year, Sam Smith has been dominating television screens at all times of days. Whether it’s late night programing like Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and David Letterman, or daytime shows like The Today Show and BBC’s Breakfast, the UK crooner has missed no opportunity to support his In the Lonely Hour debut. Today, he finally met the reigning queen of daytime television, Ellen DeGeneres.
Smith sat down with Ellen for a chat before delivering a performance of “I’m Not the Only One”. Replay the performance below and the interview on Ellen’s website. Most of the conversation centered around Smith’s sexuality and his decision to come out.
After releasing his debut record only this past June, Smith has already achieved arena status. He’s got a 16-city North American arena tour mapped out for early next year. He’ll be stopping at big name venues like New York’s Madison Square Garden, Nashville’s Grande Ole Opry House, and Boston’s Agganis Arena. See the itinerary here.
