Kim Kardashian West thinks Sam Smith's voice is ''so special.''

The 33-year-old reality TV star has praised the 'Stay With Me' hitmaker, 22, on his talent and his ''kind'' personality after meeting him a few times recently.

Speaking to Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1 this morning (03.09.14), she said: ''His [Sam's] voice, I haven't really heard anything like it, it's just so special.

''He's such a sweet, sweet person. I've had the chance to meet him a couple of times recently and he's just such a kind person.''

Meanwhile, it appears the feeling is mutual as Sam recently admitted he nearly ''sh*t'' his pants when he bumped into the brunette beauty for the first time because he's such a fan of her family's E! reality TV show 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'.

He said: ''I sh*t my pants when I met Kim Kardashian West because I've been watching their whole series.

''She probably wears a lot of make-up but she looks like she doesn't, she was natural.The first thing she said was, 'I just texted Kanye and told him you're here'.

''She told me their whole family has been listening to my record. Kendall Jenner loves it and they play it all the time.''
