His voice is immaculate, he’s humble and has a vulnerability that’s just damn precious. It’s no secret why we worship Sam Smith. During last night’s You Oughta Know Concert, we all caught ourselves getting teary-eyed watching him in performances that were nothing short of perfection. Did we mention he met the Queen of Funk Chaka Khan and even took the well-deserving title of You Oughta Know Artist of the Year? Lucky for you, we documented all of the magic.
As if we weren’t already beyond pumped to see Sam perform, the star took to Twitter the day before the concert, expressing his excitement to take the stage and to meet his idol, Chaka Khan.
I am meeting my idol tomorrow. To say I am excited is the biggest understatement of all time

Then, this happened.
Too. Much. Amazing-ness. Later in the evening, the British babe provided us with two flawless performances and gave a beautiful speech thanking his fans for naming him VH1’s Artist of the Year. Watch it here.
In case you need more Sam Smith in your life, because there’s no such thing as too much, below is his performance of “I’m Not the Only One.” Congratulations to Sam, who had as legendary of a night performing as we did watching and enjoying the glory.
