Sam Smith celebrated Grammy nominations with Ed Sheeran

Sam Smith celebrated scooping six Grammy Award nominations by heading out for sushi with Ed Sheeran.

On Friday (05Dec14), Smith joined Beyonce and Pharrell Williams as the top contender at next year's (15) Grammy Awards as they each landed six nods, including Album of the Year for his debut disc In the Lonely Hour.

Smith admits the day was "exhausting" rather than fun and he celebrated with a glass of Champagne alone after lunch with fellow nominee Ed Sheeran, who landed three nods.

Smith tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "I was with Ed the day it happened. We were so happy... we went for lunch and had sushi. But no drink was involved so it wasn't a proper celebration.

"I can't believe I got six. I'm yet to let it all sink in properly... I won't lie, it was exhausting. You'd think it would be the happiest day of my life but it was weirdly emotional.

"I had one glass of champagne in bed, by myself. It really was in the lonely hour... There was no-one with me - I had to make the most of my three hours' sleep. But tonight I'll have a bottle of wine in my room with my make-up artist."

The Grammy Awards ceremony will take place on 08 February (15) in Los Angeles.
