Dua Lipa has shot to stardom since she signed with Warner Music Group in 2015. She was the first-ever female artist to hit one billion views on YouTube with her song "New Rules," which has acquired over two billion views on YouTube at this point in time. Along with a number of hit songs in her portfolio, Dua has also won two Grammy Awards including the 2019 award for Best New Artist and the 2019 award for Best Dance Recording. She is currently up for six nominations this year, with three of those nominations being for "Don't Start Now," (Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance), one nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and two nominations for her "Future Nostalgia" album (Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year).
As shown in the clip above, Dua Lipa also performed in this year's Grammy Award ceremony. Dua sang two of her hit songs, including "Don't Start Now" from her "Future Nostalgia" album and "Levitating (feat. DaBaby)" from the midnight version of the same album. Both of her performances featured pink outfits and backup dancers, the latter of which could be seen wearing metallic silver face paint and bright pink lipstick. The backup dancers could also be seen wearing pink goggles, which separated their face paint from the non-painted section of their skin. Stars like Bad Bunny and Daily Show host Trevor Noah were shown watching the performance, and both appeared to be enjoying it as they tapped their feet in time with the rhythm of the songs. Overall, Dua Lipa's performance seemed to be a hit with both celebrity and non-celebrity audiences having a generally favorable opinion on not only the song choice, but the performance as a whole.
