Lewis Capaldi got confused for a seat-filler at his first-ever Grammys

Lewis Capaldi may have dubbed himself "America's Sweetheart" after his hit song 'Somone You Loved' became a US number one back in October, however, the 23-year-old Scottish musician, who rose to fame last year with his debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, isn't exactly a well-known face across the pond.

This is something he learned in the most hilarious way possible while attending his first-ever Grammys. He was nominated for Song of the Year for 'Someone You Loved', and while sitting in the audience, he was mistaken for a seat filler.

This was Capaldi's reaction to a troll who said he didn't deserve to be successful: 

As anyone who has encountered Capaldi on social media will attest, he is a man who famously doesn't take himself too seriously, and this Grammys fail was no exception.

He recounted the mixup on Twitter, writing: "A lady at the grammys [sic] has just come up and offered to take my seat because she thought I was one of the people who sits in the chairs to fill them when someone gets up to use the bathroom #GRAMMYs."

Needless to say, the 23-year-old's legions of fans were tickled pink by the mixup.

One fan wrote: "I love it that you are just a regular guy who has skyrocketed to international fame without ever combing your hair."

A second joked: "this is peak capaldi at the grammys content."

Meanwhile, another fan simply suggested: "Take her up on the offer when you go to do your acceptance speech."

Unfortunately, Capaldi never won the Grammy and lost out to Billie Eilish, 18, who won Song of the Year with her hit 'Bad Guy'.

But this wasn't the only tweet that the Scottish 23-year-old shared from the event. He also posted a picture of himself on the toilet (as you do) making a thumbs up.

In a world of celebrities blown up with botox and cosmetic surgery, Capaldi is a welcome breath of fresh air. You keep doing you, pal. You'll get a Grammy soon enough.
