  18. Piper Marie says:

    Dayum you fine!!! Boy you found a way.. love that Billie Eilesh intro. Perfect like his voice

  19. Kate C says:

    He has a very nice voice, but that song, and especially that version, cannot be performed in that way by anyone other than Sam Smith. He didn’t turn the song into his own song, he kept some of the runs and choices that Sam makes but added in too many of his own runs. It also sounded like he was rushing the vocals and not using the piano.
    Regardless I look forward to seeing what Ryan brings to Hollywood and beyond.
