Lewis Capaldi Says He Was Mistaken For A Staff Member At The Grammys
While the majority of pop stars like to strike a pose on the red carpet as they flaunt their designer outfits, Capaldi took his Grammys debut entrance as an opportunity to generally muck about and be a big daftie.
Then, during the awards themselves, the 23-year-old - who was nominated in the Best Song category for 'Someone You Loved' - was apparently mistaken for a seat-warming mudblood by a member of staff.
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 :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy: #GRAMMYs

No doubt said lady was mortified when she realised the error of her ways, but in her defence, Capaldi is abnormally normal-looking for such an event.

The big winner on the night though was 18-year-old Billie Eilish, who claimed all four of the most coveted awards: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Best New Artist.
She also scooped the Best Pop Vocal award and was nominated for Best Pop Solo.
In landing the four big ones for her chart-topping debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and single 'Bad Guy', Eilish became the first person to achieve the feat since Christopher Cross in 1981 and replaced Taylor Swift as the youngest artist to win a Grammy for Album of the Year.
Eilish, who recently announced she'd be doing the new James Bond song, appeared to be completely bowled over by her domination of the ceremony, at one point even saying she felt Ariana Grande deserved the award for Album of the Year.
Accepting her award for Song of the Year with her brother Finneas O'Connell, who produced and co-wrote her album, Eilish said: "Why? Wow... Oh my god, so many other songs deserved this, I'm sorry.
"Hi. Thank you so much. This is my first Grammys. I never thought this would ever happen in my whole life. I grew up watching them. And this is my brother Finneas, and he's my best friend.
"I feel like I joke around a lot, and I never take anything seriously at these kinds of things, but I genuinely want to say I'm so grateful. And I only want to say that I'm grateful, and I'm so honoured to be here amongst all of you.
"I love you to my core. I grew up watching all of you. Thank you to my team, my mom, my dad, my best friends... for keeping me alive to this day."
