MTV’s Video Music Awards have just announced Sam Smith as the final performer of this year’s show. The awards will take place at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday, Aug. 24 and will be the first time Sam has performed at an awards show but, of course, definitely not the last.
It’s not just an MTV Video Music Awards appearance Sam Smith has to celebrate, however. He’s also been nominated in the Best Male Music Video category and in the MTV Artist to Watch category.
Although no surprises there, as he’s catapulted to fame in the US in a matter of weeks with even stars like Kirsten Dunst saying they’ve bought his debut album and are absolutely loving it.
