Grammys 2020: Lizzo wins Best Pop Solo Performance for 'Truth Hurts', taking home three trophies so far
She leads the field with eight nominations
At the 62nd annual Grammy Awards, Lizzo kickstarted "music's biggest night" with host Alicia Keys on a mournful note. "This one's for Kobe," she began. The music sensation leads the field with eight nominations, including Best New Artist and Best Album.
While she already nabbed two trophies at the pre-show premiere awards, the singer also went on to win the Best Pop Solo Performance trophy for 'Truth Hurts'. Fans can't stop raving about her win. "She looks like the fabulous queen that she is! Won the first award of the night, Best Solo Pop Performance," one tweet read.
Another fan wrote, "First award, best solo pop goes to Lizzo. Congratulations to her," and one music lover posted, "I’m so pumped for Lizzo right now... I can’t wait to see the pictures of her from after the show holding her multiple awards!"
"My parents have been divorced 30 years. I instructed them to watch #Grammys2020 because I wanted them to see @lizzo. In separate phone calls they have asked me to explain Tyler the Creator. My response: How 'bout Lizzo. She's going home with at least one Grammy!" one tweet read.
The other nominees in the category were:
'Spirit' — Beyoncé
'Bad Guy' — Billie Eilish
'7 Rings' — Ariana Grande
'You Need to Calm Down' — Taylor Swift
The singer turned heads at the star-studded ceremony in a mesmerizing Atelier Versace number that featured a corset-inspired top half and a well fitted flowy bottom. The corset had crystal-encrusted piping, shaped like flames.
