Meghan Trainor Sobbing Through Her Best New Artist Speech Will Make Your Heart Swell

The 22-year-old also performed a Lionel Richie tribute at the Grammys.

Singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor is having quite the night at the 2016 Grammys. First, she killed it onstage when she sang a tribute to Lionel Richie alongside fellow superstars John Legend, Demi Lovato, Luke Bryan, Tyrese Gibson, and Richie himself.

Then the 22-year-old "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" singer snagged a Grammy of her own: Best New Artist. She beat out hopefuls Tori Kelly, James Bay, Courtney Barnett, and Sam Hunt. This is her first Grammy win, though "All About That Bass" was nominated last year for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Trainor delivered the most emotional acceptance speech of the night thus far. Choking back tears, she thanked her team for "looking at me like an artist" and her parents for "always believing in [her]." Her dad, sitting in the audience, also had tears in his eyes. The two walked the red carpet together and took many family-album-worthy pics.

Trainor ended her speech with a touching, "I'm a mess, I have to go cry." Rest assured, Trainor, we're sobbing happy tears right along with you. ???
