A trophy fell on the 19-year-old singer as she posed backstage after the show on Sunday, April 3, with her awards piled high in her arms. The Californian made a shocked expression as the award split in two.
Similarly, Swift, 32, had a difficult time balancing four Grammy statuettes in her hands while posing for pictures at the Grammy Awards. On the red carpet, the “Blank Space” singer sported an off-the-shoulder gown, while Rodrigo opted for a black dress, opera-length gloves, and double chokers in a similar style.
The actress made her Grammys debut on Sunday night, and she told Entertainment Tonight that she was “genuinely so excited” to see the other performers in action. Before the show, Rodrigo said, “If I won one, that would just be something I couldn’t even fathom.”
After Silk Sonic, the star of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series took the stage and wowed the crowd with her hit single “Drivers License.”
Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album were also awarded to the Bizaardvark alum. It was her “biggest dream come true,” Rodrigo gushed in her first acceptance speech.
“Thank you to everyone at Interscope, especially John Janick, for believing in me and my songwriting before anything else,” the former Disney Channel star continued. My music would not have been possible without Dan [Nigro]. The success of this project is largely due to the contributions of my best friend, collaborator, and mentor, Dan, so I want to thank you.
In November 2021, after being nominated for seven awards, the singer-songwriter opened up to her Twitter followers about the “meaningful” honour.
As a child, the “Deja Vu” singer’s family lived just blocks away from the Staples Center, where the Grammy Awards were held every year, she recalled. Walking outside the arena, I’d gaze in wonderment at the plaques on the ground that listed the names of the winners. I spent a lot of my free weekends at the Grammy museum because I was so intrigued by the show’s history and the incredible musicians who were a part of it. … I’m speechless at the outpouring of support I’ve received. “I will never forget this day.”
In Swift’s case, her ninth studio album, Evermore, was nominated for Album of the Year on Sunday, but she chose to skip the event. Jon Batiste was the winner.
