LEWIS CAPALDI: Just before we go any farther, I want to make it clear to everybody. You may see me twitching a little bit up here. No-- nothing to be worried about.
I have-- I have Tourette's. I have Tourette's.
Thank you for cheering my disability.
[INAUDIBLE]. Some guy comes up. Hey, I got a wheelchair. Everybody's like, woo! What the [MUTED] are you doing? Yeah, no. So I have Tourette's. I'm absolutely fine. Everything's good. I just twitch a little bit. And it kind of looks like I'm dancing. But trust me, my dancing is much, much, much more sexual.
So just-- just to put everyone's mind at ease, I'm good, baby. I'm up here. I'm good.
And it's not all bad. I also get a parking pass.
I've got to deal when I'm not really ticking, I get some dirty looks when I park in the spots. But rest assured, I am allowed. Right.
