Sam Smith 'Stay With Me' / 'Lay Me Down' (live on 'SNL')
UK crooner Sam Smith brought his heartfelt, heartwrenching gospel pop to Saturday Night Live last night (March 29).

Joined by an enormous backing band, complete with a large choir, the song "Stay With Me" was the more engaging of the two. When Smith stripped things down for "Lay Me Down," he definitely succeeded in showcasing his vocal talents, though it wasn't quite as hard-hitting as the first track.

Watch Sam Smith perform both songs on SNL below. Sam Smith's In the Lonely Hour arrives on June 17 via Columbia Records.
