Sam Smith Hauntingly Covers 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas'
By Philiana Ng
Grab your hot cocoa, Sam Smith has a holiday treat.
Days after landing six GRAMMY nominations, the 22-year-old Brit beautifully covered the classic ballad "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" with his own stripped-down version -- and he did it to perfection.
Accompanied by just a piano, Smith expertly croons his way through the sad tune for a simple, no-frills -- dare we say, haunting -- rendition of the Christmas staple and even cracks a smile at the end of the performance.
At the GRAMMYs, the soulful "Stay With Me" singer will go up against the likes of Taylor Swift, Iggy Azalea, Pharrell Williams, Beyonce and Meghan Trainor in the top GRAMMY categories, including Album, Record and Song of the Year.
