While Ariana, 25, wasn't at the Grammy Awards - which were hosted by Alicia Keys at LA's Staples Centre - she scooped the Best Pop Vocal Album for her record "Sweetener" and used Twitter to admit she was still delighted to have won.

Dua faced stiff competition from artists like H.E.R., Bebe Rexha, Chloe x Halle and fellow Brit Jorja Smith, and was visibly emotional as she made her way onto the stage.

Speaking on the red carpet earlier in the night, Lipa said her previous year in music felt like being "strapped to a rocket". "It's a change we hope to see for many years to come", Lipa said.
