It seemed like a strange pairing to see up-and-coming British singer Sam Smith
alongside Louie C.K., one of America's most admired comedic minds on the Saturday Night Live
marquee this weekend. But the 21-year-old kid's performances of "Stay With Me" and "Lay Me Down" off his forthcoming debut In the Lonely Hour
could easily be considered the two crowning moments of the entire episode. His humble innocence is palpable and his voice is absolutely chilling. Watch both performances below.
