Dua Lipa Scores First Grammy for Best Dance Recording!

Dua Lipa Scores First Grammy for Best Dance Recording!

The British singer-songwriter Dua Lipa won best new artist at last night's 61st Grammys Awards.

The 23-year-old singer, who had just performed with St. Vincent, couldn't help but express her shock and gratitude onstage. "I [want to say] howw honored I am to be nominated alongside so many incredible female artists this year, because I guess this year we really stepped up", she said, in a jab to Recording Academy President Neil Portnow's controversial comments last year.

While Ariana, 25, wasn't at the Grammy Awards - which were hosted by Alicia Keys at LA's Staples Centre - she scooped the Best Pop Vocal Album for her record "Sweetener" and used Twitter to admit she was still delighted to have won.

Last year's batch of Grammys nominees and winners were made up of nearly entirely men, effectively shutting out deserving female artists from the award show.

According to News4Jax sister station WDIV in Detroit , Ford has issued two other recalls affecting just over 31,000 vehicles. Owners of the affected vehicles are advised to contact their dealer to have the powertrain control module software updated.

Tearfully taking to the stage, Dua said she was "so nervous, excited and grateful" to accept the trophy, after beating the likes of Bebe Rexha, H.E.R., Jorja Smith, Chloe x Halle and Luke Combs.

"It's a big difference from the previous years and I feel so grateful to be a part of the nominations when they came out on December 7, I believe, and to see so many women on it - I was like, This is awesome".

Later this month, Dua is also expected to appear at the Brit Awards, where she's among this year's most nominated stars.
