Sam Smith experiences all of the feels all of the time. So it’s no surprise that Smith was moved to tears by You Oughta Know artist Tori Kelly‘s show-stopping voice when she opened for him on his In the Lonely Hour Tour.
You Oughta Know
Host Ingrid Michaelson, You Oughta Know alum Tove Lo, and more took Palladia‘s Epic Awesome SXSW Showcase by storm on Wednesday evening at Austin’s Cedar Door Grill. In case you missed it, hit the gallery for a photographic journey through the event.
Sam Smith has been kicking your ass in the health game and you didn’t even know it. Smith lost 14 pounds over the past two weeks, according to People, which is the same weight as, like, a baby and a half. Or, to use the metric measurement and Sam Smith’s words, it’s “over a stone.”
Tori Kelly knows her curly haired artists by kinks. Could it be because the You Oughta Know artist has a voluminous mane of her own?
We could tell you that Echosmith is based out of LA, composed of four siblings, or that their single “Bright” is a stroke of genius (watch below), but you all know that by now. So instead of spending more time on what you know, we want to share with you what you ought to know about the indie pop band.
It was a VH1 You Oughta Know kinda night at the historic Beacon Theatre in NYC this past Friday. Hozier and George Ezra, two recent additions to our YOK family, graced the stage at the Upper West Side venue—and they did not disappoint.
George Ezra opened for YOK big brother Sam Smith at Madison Square Garden in January. As Ezra told host Ellie Lee, he felt “lucky to be there,” and unlike how most of us would have felt, Ezra “wasn’t nervous.” Get to know Ezra through GIFs in the video, and find out what exactly he means by “keep your pecker up.”
Today has been an active one for BBC Radio 1. First, Rihanna premiered a new song called “Towards The Sun” on the show. Then, Ed Sheeran entered the Live Lounge to cover Christina Aguilera‘s “Dirrty.”
