The Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter was one of the guest stars during the series eleven finale weekend… but apparently performing on the show doesn't guarantee you'll meet the boss!
Sam told The Mirror: "I didn't like that I didn't get to meet Simon and Cheryl. I would have thought they would come and say hello or I'd have got to go and say hello. But I never got to see them."
The crooner appeared on the finale night alongside fellow musicians One Direction, before Ben Haenow was crowned winner over bookies' favourite Fleur East.
Sam's currently over in Australia where he will be celebrating a very merry New Year's Eve indeed after an INSANELY successful year!
The 22-year-old from London released debut album In The Lonely Hour this year, which spawned smash singles including 'Money On My Mind', 'I'm Not The Only One' and 'Stay With Me'.
He ended the year being nominated for a whopping six Grammy Awards, including the prestigious 'Record of the Year' and 'Song of the Year' categories.
