Even though the Grammys didn’t give any awards to SZA, one of the nominees for Best New Artist, she came on stage and gave a performance that showed people the depth and breadth of her talent.
Twitter was ablaze with love for the soulful singer and seriously demanding a recount over at Grammy headquarters.
SZA is showing the other girls what a REAL Best New Artist is #GRAMMYs

That woman should’ve won a Grammy.

I keep forgetting that for most people this past year was their first impression of SZA. She did the most with that and set herself up to do whatever she want with her art from here on out 👑🌺

SZA unfortunately went 0/5 tonight, but she is an incredible artist and gonna be performing on shows like this for a while. Her time will come. #GRAMMYs
