Piers Morgan praises Lewis Capaldi after he called Glastonbury set a 's***show'
| Last updated
Lewis Capaldi has received praise from all corners after calling his set at Glastonbury a 's***show' when he had to ask fans to help him fill in the lyrics.
He'd just performed his song 'Bruises' when he addressed the masses of fans at Glastonbury, telling them: "I’m going to be honest everybody but I’m starting to lose my voice up here, but we’re going to keep going and we’re going to go until the end.
“I just need you all to sing with me as loud as you can if that’s okay?”
Capaldi's fans stepped up and helped him sing his way through the remainder of his set, and when he was done, he let them know how much their support had meant to him.
The singer had been apologising to the crowd and the organisers of Glastonbury for his voice going on stage and he received plenty of love and appreciation for his talents in response.
“I wanted to come back and do Glastonbury because it’s obviously so incredible so I just want to thank you all for coming out. I was scared but you’ve really made me feel at ease so thank you very much for that."
"I feel like I’ll be taking another wee break over the next couple of weeks so you probably won’t see much of me for the rest of the year maybe even. But when I do come back, when I do see you, I hope you’re all still up for watching."
Capaldi's fans praised him for being 'very brave and very open and honest' about the difficulties he was facing on stage, and to see the Glastonbury crowds help him sing through it was really quite beautiful.
Plenty have offered their best wishes to Capaldi for the way he handled what must have been a difficult situation, one of them being Piers Morgan who said the moment was 'amazing' and offered 'kudos' both to Capaldi 'for not quitting' and the crowd for 'singing him through'.
Others chipped in to say similar, with TV presenter Dan Walker calling it a 'special moment', and many more showing their appreciation for Capaldi and the crowd.
One fan said they loved the way he was 'taken care of by the crowd' as it was a perfect example of what wonderful moments people can make when they 'come together and are kind'.
Another said it was 'heartbreaking beyond words' to see Capaldi struggle and called him a 'beautiful soul', while a third said it was 'absolutely incredible' and praised the way 'the crowd lifted him up'.
Message after message poured in to pay tribute to the wonderful moment Capaldi and the Glastonbury crowd created together, and to raise Capaldi for showing the resilience and honesty to get through a difficult moment.
