Lipa was born on August 22, 1995 in London to Albanian parents.

Lipa's comments appear to reference Portnow's suggestion from previous year that women needed to "step up" when asked why the 2018 awards were predominantly male. Grande felt "insulted" after producers initially refused to allow her to perform "7 rings", the latest single from her next album "Thank U, Next".

In February 2018, Lipa won two BRIT Awards for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act. "For anyone who hasn't realized how special they are to have a different story or background, just know that no matter where you're from, never let that get in the way of your dreams".

"I guess this year we've really stepped up", Lipa said, followed by a roar of applause from the crowd.

The full list of Best New Artist nominees for this year's Grammy's included Chloe X Halle, Luke Combs, Greta Van Fleet, H.E.R., Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.

Speaking in the winners' room after accepting her award, Lipa said it was "upsetting" that Grammy-nominated artist 21 Savage had been detained "given that he hasn't actually done anything".

Her sixth single "New Rules", which came off her self-titled debut studio album, was her first number one in Britain - and the first by a female solo artist to top the United Kingdom charts since 2015's "Hello" by Adele.
