SINGER Lewis Capaldi has told how he was mistaken for a seat filler at the prestigious Grammy Awards in LA.

The 23-year-old Scot was attending the plush ceremony which was held at the Staples Centre on Sunday night when the unfortunate incident happened. 

The star, who reached number one in the US Billboard Hot 100 with his single Someone You Loved, told his fans on Twitter: "A lady at the Grammys 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."

The tweet went viral with hundreds of likes, comments, and retweets. 

Capaldi was nominated for the Song of the Year award for his hit single Someone You Loved.

Capaldi lost out in his category to Billie Eilish, who scooped all the major prizes at the ceremony.

She swept all four major categories at the 62nd Grammy Awards.

The 18-year-old came out top in the so-called Big Four - album, song, record and new artist of the year.

She earned her trophies for her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and the single Bad Guy.

Capaldi, however, still seemed to enjoy himself at the show, sharing a photograph of himself in the toilets at the Los Angeles event, writing: "#GRAMMYs BABY!!!"

He previously compared the feeling of being nominated for his first Grammy to that of eating a large serving of chicken parmigiana and then lying on the sofa watching Game Of Thrones.

He told US entertainment show Access: "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 TV? Game Of Thrones. Before it was finished.

"You're lying there. Your 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 - but you're lying there and thinking 'You know what, this is it'.

"And that's how I feel. I feel like a big bloated boy watching Game Of Thrones.

"But bloated with love. Not chicken parm. You know what I'm saying?"

We told on Saturday how Lewis Capaldi's big brother Anthony was making his TV debut on BBC Scotland's short film Haggis.

The 25-year-old trained to be an actor in Glasgow.
