Golden Globes: Sam Smith Wins for Best Original Song

Katy Perry presented the award for "Writing’s on the Wall" from the movie 'Spectre.'

In case you were wondering why Katy Perry was present at the 73rd Annual Golden Globes on Sunday (Jan. 10) night, that question was answered when she took the stage to present the award for best original song.

The category was stuffed with big names: Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Live You Do" from Fifty Shades of Grey, Sam Smith's "Writing's on the Wall" from Spectre, Brian Wilson's "One Kind of Love" from Love & Mercy, Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" featuring Charlie Puth from Furious 7, and Sumi Jo's "Simple Song #3" from Youth.

Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes took the award for their James Bond song, with a humbled Smith saying, "I genuinely didn't think we were gonna get this."
