Sam Smith Delivers Adorable, Silent Acceptance Speech At The Billboard Music Awards

Sam Smith was named top male artist at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night, but the singer wasn’t able to attend the ceremony to receive his award in person. Instead, the four-time Grammy winner accepted the honor with an adorable “Love Actually”-inspired video.

Smith is recovering from vocal surgery. Unable to speak, he filmed himself delivering his acceptance speech with the help of a few cue cards.

In his speech, the “Lay Me Down” crooner thanked his fans for their support.


He also gave a shout-out to some of his famous friends.



Smith’s silent speech is reminiscent of a famous scene in the 2003 romantic comedy “Love Actually.” Watch the scene here:
