Music Crush Monday: Dua Lipa

Lady Gaga Jada Pinkett Smith Alicia Keys Michelle Obama Jennifer Lopez take the stage at the Grammys

"Oh my goodness, thank you so much", Dua said.

Dua is also up for Best New Artist, make sure to tune in at 8pm ET/5pm PT on CBS to see if she takes home the award!

The 23-year-old was born in London to parents who emigrated from Kosovo; her father moonlighted as a rocker in the Kosovar band Oda, in which he was lead vocalist.

Her friends and family cheered on the star as she shouted and danced upon hearing the impressive news.

President and CEO of The Recording Academy Neil Portnow speaks onstage during the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on February 10, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.


It's unfortunate that Lipa wasn't given time to finish her speech, but Lipa continued the discussion she opened at Grammy press rooms after the ceremony was over.

"I want to begin [.] by saying how honoured I am to be nominated alongside so many incredible female artists this year", Dua Lipa said, adding "I guess this year we really stepped up". Reporters asked her the importance of that phrase, and the young singer remained enthusiastic and unapologetic.

"I think that women have a really necessary perspective to art, to music, and it's really nice to see that getting a chance to be included, you know?"

Dua Lipa was on FIRE last night at The Grammys.
