Raitt, who won the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at last year’s ceremony, won for her song “Just Like That,” beating out several big names in the category, including Lizzo, Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Beyoncé and Adele.
Raitt looked around at her table in surprise following her win and noted that she was “totally humbled” in her acceptance speech for the Grammy that recognizes the songwriter.
“I’m so surprised, I don’t know what to say. This is just an unreal moment,” said Raitt, who noted that singer and songwriter John Prine, who died in 2020, inspired her song.
Twitter users, especially fans of artists nominated in the category, were also surprised by Raitt’s victory.
