Sam Smith will be the latest music star to front his own special show on BBC One tonight.
Sam Smith At The BBC, presented by Fearne Cotton, will air this evening at 8PM on BBC One.
It’s the latest in a series of musical specials following in the footsteps of Michael Buble, Harry Styles and Adele.
Oscar and Grammy Award-winning Sam Smith will perform new tracks from his eagerly awaited new album and classic tracks, accompanied by his band and the BBC Concert Orchestra, as well as talking about his career, music and his life to date.
The one-off 60-minute special from BBC Studios, filmed in front of a live studio audience, will include songs Sam has never previously performed before for a TV audience.
Sam said: “I’m so honoured and thankful to the BBC for giving me this opportunity to showcase some of my new music from my album in this amazing, intimate setting. I can’t wait to sing some old songs and have a big old sing along with everyone.”
Sam has amassed an array of prestigious accolades including a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for Best Original Song (Writing’s On The Wall), four Grammys, three BRIT Awards, six Mobo Awards and two Guinness World Records.
Sam’s multi-platinum selling album In The Lonely Hour has sold over 12.4m copies globally, breaking records in America as the highest first week sales for a UK male artist’s debut album. His new single Too Good At Goodbyes went to number one in its first week making it his sixth number one single in the UK.
Fearne added: “As I’ve adored Sam’s voice since he performed on Radio 1’s Live Lounge in 2015, I jumped at the chance to present this show. I can’t wait to see him again, watch him perform new and old tracks and chat to him about his music and life.
