It's so often the case that musicians, actors, whoever - when they're nominated for an award, they talk about how humbling the feeling is.
"Oh, to be nominated alongside so-and-so is just so humbling...", "I couldn't believe it, I didn't know what to do..." - we've heard almost every variation on that for the past twenty-odd years. It's boring, it's trite, everyone's heard it before.
Lewis Capaldi, however, he's out here actually trying to connect with people in a way that we can all understand. Quizzed about his feelings on the nomination during a red carpet interview with Access Hollywood, Capaldi described it thusly.
"You know what? If I could describe it. It’s like…imagine, right, eating a whole chicken parm. Imagine eating a whole chicken parmesan. Lying down. What’s on your TV? 'Game of Thrones' before it was finished," he explained.
"You’re lying there. You’re belly’s bloated. The TV’s on. And you’re thinking, 'You know what? This is the life.' You’re not thinking about going to the bathroom later, which will not be pretty after the chicken parm."
This is, quite honestly, the most comparable, identifiable description we've ever heard for a Grammy nomination, and damn it if we don't want him to win it now so he'll explain what it's like when he wins it. If for nothing else, it will act as an illuminative experience for us all.
The Grammys take place tonight, and we'll have the full winners' list, coverage from the night and photo galleries up first thing in the morning.
