And the 2018 Grammy for the Best New Artist goes to Alessia Cara. The singer beat out Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, SZA, and Julia Michaels to receive the title of best new artist. The singer, who admitted her nervousness while accepting the award, said, 'Holy cow. Wow I'm shaking. 've been pretending to win Grammys since I was a kid in my shower. You would think I have the speech thing down but I don't. Thank you to my parents and brother for believing in me and supporting my dream even when it felt really far-fetched and unrealistic'.
Thanking her team, her fans and the Grammys, she urged people to support real music and real artists. 'I want to encourage people to support real music and real artists because everyone deserves the same shot. That goes for everyone not only in the industry, but everyone deserves the same shot. Thank you so much. My mind is blown', noted Cara. Cara is up for four nominations, including song of the year and best music video (for Logic's '1-800-273-8255,' also featuring Khalid) and best pop duo/group performance for her Zedd collab 'Stay'.
