Later in the night, Lorde picked up her very first Grammy for Best Pop Vocal performance for “Royals.” The pop star was visibly overwhelmed by the honor. She gave a shout out to her fellow nominees and said that she had never expected it to happen. She finished her acceptance speech by saying, “I can’t,” and walked off stage.

She seemed just as surprised, but a little more collected, when she and her “Royals” producer, Joel Little, picked up the Grammy for “Song of the Year” for “Royals.”

Okay, so maybe we were quick to anoint her as pop’s new poised and polished princess. Yes, her Grammy win confirms that she’s a royal, but her adorable and authentic teen reaction to the award suggests she’s still an alternative to the usual diva that we see on stage.
