Dua Lipa & alt-rocker St. Vincent brought their big-time energy to the Grammys stage with a dazzling duet. Watch them team up for a show-stopping performance.
Who said rock & roll was dead? The 2019 Grammy Awards was jam-packed with so many epic performances on Feb. 10, and “Electricity” songstress Dua Lipa, 23, teamed up with alt-rocker St. Vincent for an onstage duet, and it was electric indeed. Their performance came as one of the final acts in the nearly four-hour telecast. There’s no denying that Dua infuses all her hits with a bit of an edge, but she was a bonafide rockstar next to Vincent, AKA Annie Clark, at the 61st annual awards ceremony.
St. Vincent kicked things off “Masseduction” then was joined by Dua as they slid into her hit “One Kiss” with a seductive duet that ended up meshing both songs. There was some serious HEAT between these ladies, who twinned out with matching dark short bobs and looked like they could be sisters. Right after their performance Dua was named the coveted Grammys Best New Artist, which was the best way to end her evening!
In addition to being performers this year, both women took home their first Grammy Awards. St. Vincent took home Best Rock Song for “Masseduction” along with co-songwriter Jack Antonoff . Dua landed herself a Grammy of her own for Best Dance Recording, thanks to her smash “Electricity,” with Mark Ronson, and Diplo. Dua told HollywoodLife and other media outlets backstage just how much the win meant to her. “It’s crazy. Its mind blowing to get the opportunity to be here. Winning as a British artist, getting that recognition means so much to me and it makes me work so harder. I mean I am still trying to figure out how I feel but all filled with amazing emotions and it is exciting. I am excited and grateful and humbled,” the singer said.
Grammys week also means a parade of parties for celebs attendees, and Dua arrived to the prestigious, annual Clive Davis pre-party looking like a vision. In head-to-toe blue, Dua stole the spotlight in a strapless gown with an oversized bow across the chest. Her funky number was completed by sparkling silver heels, and an up-do fit for a princess. The pop star truly looked like royalty!

After her big win, Dua has the sweetest reaction to the news, according to a source at the show. “She was beyond elated to win the Grammy. She was truly shocked. She was one of only a few stars to come back in the press room because she was just so excited and thankful,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HL. “She honestly couldn’t believe she won — She was even squealing extremely loudly and hugging everyone! She was by far the most excited and surprised person to come backstage all night. It was so cute!” they added.
