St. Vincent won for Best Rock Song for her album's title track "Masseducation", and Dua Lipa for Best New Artist.

The 23-year-old, who beat Chloe x Halle, H.E.R., Margo Price, Bebe Rexha, and Jorja Smith to bag the honour, said as she took the stage: "I guess where I want to begin is by saying how honoured I am to be nominated among so many incredible female artists".

"I don't have personal experience of those kinds of brick walls that you face but I think it's upon us - us as an industry - to make the welcome mat very obvious, breeding opportunities for all people who want to be creative and paying it forward and creating that next generation of artists", he added.

Lipa performed for the crowd attending the Grammy Awards on Sunday night with "Best Rock Song" victor St. Vincent, playing St. Vincent's winning song "MASSEDUCTION" and Lipa's 'One Kiss'.

Di Maria makes abusive gestures to United fans after PSG opener
Di Maria was clearly fired up and utilised his limited grasp of English to taunt the Old Trafford crowd during the celebrations. Di Maria assisted PSG's second too, a delicious team goal guided past David De Gea by Kylian Mbappe with a deft touch.

In 2018, Lipa founded and organized the Sunny Hill Festival, a three-day music event held in the Germia park close to Prishtina, hosting a mixture of celebrated local and worldwide artists with Lipa as a headline act, as well as Martin Garrix and Action Bronson.

Tonight's Best New Artist win marks Lipa's second Grammy win and her second nomination.

"So many women!" Lipa continued.

The statement was a reference to Portnow's comments previous year when he said that female performers needed to "step up" in order to be nominated and win awards. "You'll be hearing from me soon", she said. Part glittery silver fabric, part shiny pewter silk, the gown was the ideal look for Lipa's Grammys debut. "It's a change we hope to see for many years to come", Lipa said. This has been changed to "Kosovo-British musician".
