Lorde has won two Grammys for song of the year and for best pop solo performance.
Seventeen year old Lorde won song of the year for Royals, which she performed a stripped-down version of as the second act of the 56th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles today.
Royals co-producer Joel Little described the song of the year win as “intense”, and said it was a “complete honour”.
Lorde took to the microphone and said she would “forever owe” Little, who had nurtured her through her early songwriting years.
“Thank you to everyone who has let this song explode, it’s been mental,” the Kiwi performer, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor, said.
A few hours after the wins, Lorde tweeted about her success: “I am so grateful for the attention my work has received tonight and this year. Thankyou and goodnight.”
She also sent out praise to fellow singer Taylor Swift, tweeting “very proud of @taylorswift13 tonight. One of the most masterful performers I’ve seen”.
Lorde was denied a Grammy in two other categories: record of the year and best pop vocal album.
