Grammys 2019: Pop star Dua Lipa crowned as Best New Artist

Earlier Sunday, Dua Lipa won the Best Dance Recording Grammy for "Electricity".

Moments before her win, she also performed live with singer/songwriter St Vincent, swapping between her song Masseduction and the chart-topping One Kiss, also throwing in a few lines of Respect as a tribute to Aretha Franklin. "I want to say a big thank you to my fans who have allowed me to be the best version of myself".

"So many women!" Lipa continued.

Lipa's comments appear to reference Portnow's suggestion from a year ago that women needed to "step up" when asked why the 2018 awards were predominantly male. 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.

Russell had a double-double - his seventh of the season - with 28 points and a career-high 14 assists, plus seven rebounds. Allen Crabbe had 22 points while shooting 6-for-10 from 3-point range - now 11-for-19 over the last two games.

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

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.

Asked about 21's situation backstage at the Grammys 2019, Dua said she finds it "upsetting, given that he hasn't actually done anything". This has been changed to "Kosovo-British musician".
