The 25-year-old pop star has had fans talking after she blessed us with a spellbinding mashup performance of ‘Levitating’ and ‘Don’t Start Now’, before going on to win a Grammy award for Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘Future Nostalgia, so it’s fair to say she had a successful evening!

Meanwhile, others were quick to point out the smooth transition between her ‘Levitating’ rendition and ‘Don’t Start Now’’ as someone added: “The transition from levitating to dont start now. dua is such a queennnnnnnn plus with the pink glitters outfit [sic].”

Dua's outfits were also a show-stopping part of the evening as the star had three outfit changes, with each as stunning as the last.

She kicked off her performance with a long, deep pink gown draped over a matching sequin bralette as she sang ‘Levitating’, before switching-up on stage as she changed into a sequin pink blazer, before taking it off to reveal a matching pink sequin two-piece set as she sang ‘Don’t Start Now’.

Her third and final outfit of the evening was a breath-taking sequin butterfly gown, with all outfits being custom-made Versace looks and this just added Dua’s incredible performance!

If it wasn’t enough that fans were in awe of the pop star’s medley on stage, other artists in attendance let it be known that they were also enjoying her performance, with a short clip of Bad Bunny dancing along being our ultimate highlight of the evening!

Dua even went on to praise the women who had been recognised in their respective fields at the Grammys, as she celebrated "female empowerment" in her acceptance speech, saying: "I feel first of all, really, really grateful. I am over the moon and I am so grateful for the recognition.

"For the recognition of women, I feel like there’s been a lot of female empowerment and lots of women winning awards tonight. And so it’s been absolutely amazing to be alongside all that, to feel that energy and for an album that means so much to me I’m just so proud to be standing here with this award. It's unmatched, the feeling."
