With such steep competition around her, Lorde edged out her fellow nominees to take home the Best Pop Solo Performance trophy at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards tonight (January 26).

During her acceptance speech, the 17-year-old songstress seemed a bit nervous as she addressed her adoring fans from the Staples Center stage.

Lorde’s song “Royals” bested Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Sara Bareilles, and she almost couldn’t believe it.

She exclaimed, “This is the one thing that I did not expect the most about tonight so thank you so much.”
