"I know i'm not there tonight (trust, i tried and still truly wished it had worked out tbh) and i know i said i try not to put too much weight into these things. but f**k. this is wild and handsome. thank you so much".

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.

However, even in her overwhelmed state, she still managed to throw a bit of shade at Grammys boss Neil Portnow, after his comments about female artists, in the wake of last year's male-heavy show.

Following the translated dig by Lipa, Portnow took the Grammy stage later in the night to address diversity, inclusion and what the future holds as his tenure comes to a close.
