The Grammys Cut Off Best New Artist Winner Dua Lipa Too

Tonight's Best New Artist win marks Lipa's second Grammy win and her second nomination. Her song "Masseduction" snagged the award for Best Rock Song and her LP by the same name won Best Recording Package.

Footage from the press room shows that Dua Lipa did not leave her comments on the stage and that she continued to speak about the subject when quizzed by reporters. In the category with Bebe Rexha and Greta Van Fleek, Lipa is amongst seriously talented artists-and she totally deserves to be there. While Dua Lipa may not feel super new to us (I'm sorry, where was her Grammy for "IDGAF"?!), she's technically a new artist.

Dua was overwhelmed with emotion while waiting backstage as the victor was announced following her performance with St. Vincent.

She escaped with only a mild case of hypothermia and "a few minor abrasions", according to local journalist Bernadette Wilks. She was subsequently airlifted to Albert Luthuli Central Hospital to be treated and then taken to another unnamed facility.

The singer thanked her fans who "have allowed me to be the best..." Lipa was making a reference to Recording Academy president Neil Portnow's argument that women in music needed to "step up" if they wanted to get recognized for their accomplishments.

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