After a year of bumping Lizzo, it’s time to finally see if the Recording Academy is as obsessed with her as everyone else. And as we continue to troll shopping sites for affordable knockoffs of Lizzo’s stunning outfit and watch her performance for the ten-millionth time, let’s take a minute to appreciate the goodness that was her acceptance speech just now, which was honestly a real tear-jerker if I am honest.

Weird!
But aside from the unnecessary drama, this year, Lizzo is nominated for eight Grammys. Tonight, she still has a shot at taking home the award for Best Album, Best Song, Best New Artist, Best Record, Best R&B Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance.
