The role of the seat-filler at award ceremonies such as the Grammys is to ensure no seats are empty during the filming of the show.
Usually, a seat-filler will hold a celebrities seat while they are gone to the bathroom, the bar or backstage.
The 23-year-old was nominated for Song of the Year at the prestigious awards ceremony for his hit Someone You Loved.
He lost out to Billie Eilish who nabbed the award for her hit song Bad Guy.
Billie won five out of her six nods, scooping all four of the main prizes for Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
She also won the award for Best Pop Vocal Album.
She made history by becoming the youngest to win in all four main categories.
