Cyrus won her first Grammy, which Mariah Carey presented, defeating Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Doja Cat, and Taylor Swift.
Miley Cyrus won her first Grammy award, kicking off the 2024 ceremony.
After defeating Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, and Taylor Swift with her performance on “Flowers,” Noah Cyrus, 31, won best pop solo performance. However, as she walked the red carpet to accept the prize from Mariah Carey, she couldn’t help but gush about the fellow pop queen.
She addressed both of them “MC” and began her speech by praising Mariah Carey, who gave her the honor. She also remarked, “This is just too iconic.”
“I could have missed the trophy, and that’s acceptable, but not Mariah Carey,” she added, adding that she had been “stuck in the pouring rain was traffic” and concerned she would “miss” the first prize of the evening. It was everything when I saw you in the Hollywood Bowl.
I was going to hold off on sharing the story I wanted to tell, but now that Mariah was here, she said, “I got my fortunate number three seat,” and continued,
A little boy once expressed his desire for a butterfly for his birthday. He was overjoyed when his parents handed him a butterfly net. He simply walked outdoors into the sunlight and began to swing endlessly. But with no luck. After sitting down on the ground, he eventually let go and gave up, accepting that he wouldn’t be able to catch this lovely butterfly. And the butterfly arrived and landed squarely on the tip if his nose at the same moment he did.
“The tune ‘Flowers’ is my butterfly,” Carey added, adding, “Aw” in the foreground as Cyrus told the narrative. I’m grateful.
The first single from Cyrus’s album Long Summer Vacation was her self-love hymn. Following its release, it became all most-streamed song on Spotify in a single week and topped the US Billboard charts for eight weeks.
On Instagram, Cyrus expressed gratitude to the community for helping the project succeed, saying, “One year ago today ‘Flowers’ started to make others happy & which renders me happy.” I cherish you. I’m grateful.
A nomination was given to Doja Cat for the song “Paint the Town Red.” “Walk on By” by Dionne Warwick is sampled in the song. Warwick wrote on Facebook saying she felt “thrilled” to have contributed to the song’s composition.
I wanted to express that I thought it was great that the young people recording today opted to pay attention to some excellent content from the elderly. People who have been recording for more than 20, 30, 40, or 50 years know that excellent music is crucial when making judgments. Thus, I’m overjoyed that you’re finding us and that you’re preserving our existence,” she said not long after it was made public.
The Barbie soundtrack song “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish was the reason behind her nomination. The song, which Eilish revealed in a conversation with Apple Music’s number 1 DJ Zane Lowe, was inspired by a writing dissatisfaction.
Furthermore, Finneas has consistently been the one to say, “No, no, no, let’s write.” Now let’s write. And to be really honest, we went through a phase where we were both really uninspired, especially throughout this past winter. She continued, “And we’ve been hard at work and attempting to make stuff.” To be honest, we hadn’t written a song in a minute until that one.
It was Rodrigo who was nominated for the song “Vampire.” “Last winter, I recorded it with my amazing and talented friend @dan_nigro, and the amazing @petrafcollins helped produce the video. After the release of the song, Rodrigo posted on Instagram, saying, “Writing this song helps me sort with many different feelings like regret, anger, and heartache.”
Swift’s song “Anti-Hero”—one of her lowest points to date—was nominated. In an Instagram video, she stated, “I really believe that I’ve dug this far in my insecurities in such detail before.” “I find it difficult to accept that my life has grown too big for me, and that I, you know—not to sound too depressing, but, like, I find it difficult to accept that I like a person.”
