Fans traveled far and wide to attend the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas this past weekend. While audiences raved about performances from Childish Gambino, Mariah Carry, Jason Aldean, and so many more, one famed singer-songwriter suddenly went missing from the lineup—Sam Smith.

Pulling out of the show just before his curtain call, fans were shocked by his disappearance and wondered what caused his absence. Smith took to Twitter to explain, writing, "Dear all, Due to unforeseen circumstances which transpired after rehearsal, it became clear that I’m sadly unable to perform at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Vegas tonight," Smith tweeted. "I am so so sorry about this and I want to apologise to all my fans. All my love, always. Sam x."

According to reports from Variety, the Grammy-winning artist suffered from a vocal emergency after complaining of severe throat pain. Smith then followed up by tweeting a photo of himself in a doctors office. He wrote, "Hello beautiful people. Thank you for your lovely messages. Just been to see my voice doctor in Boston after last night’s scare in Vegas, everything is luckily ok but I need to rest it this week in preparation for the start of Asia tour. I’m sorry everyone. All my love, Sam xx"

Wishing Sam Smith a full and speedy recovery!
