'Stay With Me' crooner Sam Smith has admitted to hating Christmas songs, despite recording his own version of a traditional holiday tune 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas'

Sam Smith hates Christmas songs.

The 22-year-old singer has admitted he isn't a fan of festive tunes despite recording his own version of a traditional holiday tune.

Sounding not too dissimilar to the Grinch - the Dr. Seuss character who is infamous for his loathing of the winter season - Sam said: "I hate Christmas songs. It's true."

However, he defended putting his own soulful twist on the classic song 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' as he insisted it is more like a "jazz" song.

Chatting with Boston radio station Mix 104.1 he said: "'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' is the only song I would ever attempt to sing, because of Judy Garland singing it, and Frank Sinatra singing it.

"To me, it sounds more like a classic jazz standard."

Sam - who has been nominated for six Grammy Awards including Best Album for his record 'In the Lonely Hour' - revealed how "excited" he was to attend the 2015 event because people finally know who he is.

He shared: "I'm just excited to go there because last year I was there and I sat in the very back and no one knew who I was!"
