Despite the embarrassing introduction, he is chuckling. Lewis Capaldi plays nice! The artist, who is 26 years old, performed his popular single “Forget Me” off his upcoming sophomore album, Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent, last night at the 2023 BRIT Awards hosted at the O2 venue in London.
However, the host, Mo Gilligan, unintentionally named Capaldi by the erroneous name while introducing him to the audience and the millions of viewers: “Sam Capaldi.”

After the singer finished performing, the comic immediately expressed regret.
“What a performance! Please give it up for Lewis Capaldi with a house gospel choir, everyone,” Gilligan said, adding, “I do apologize; I just called him Sam. It just goes to show how strong the drinks are at the BRITs. They’re not playing around.”
Capaldi was unable to respond in real time on television, but he instantly went to Twitter to respond as hilariously as he could.

The artist added his head to a picture of Sam Smith, the “Unholy” singer, who also attended the BRIT Awards last night. Sam Smith was wearing a slick black leather costume with puffed-out shoulders and hips that swelled out on either side.

Another fan pointed out the irony by saying, “Lewis Capaldi was singing a song called “Forget Me” after they called him “Sam Capaldi.”
