Winning Grammies is like eating a Parm of chicken: lewis capaldi

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.

“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.

Capaldi is up for Song of the Year – his first ever nomination – at this year’s Grammys, pitting him against the likes of Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Lizzo.

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.
