British singer-songwriter Dua Lipa was joined onstage by DaBaby to perform two of her biggest 2020 hits “Levitating” and “Don’t Start Now.” Lipa was nominated for Album of the Year with Future Nostalgia, Record of the Year with “Don’t Start Now,” Song of the Year with the same track, Best Solo Performance, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance alongside J Balvin, Bad Bunny and Tainy and finally Best Pop Vocal Album.
Lipa, just two years prior to this year’s rendition, had been given the title Best New Artist at the Grammys. This year, Lipa took the stage in style after rising to stardom and claiming one of the biggest hits of last Summer with “Don’t Start Now.”
The performance featured three wardrobe changes as she transformed from style to style, matching the dancers behind her in purple, glittery costumes in front of a dreamy backdrop. First, Lipa performed “Levitating” with collaborator DaBaby before the song transitioned to her smash hit “Don’t Start Now.”
