Doja Cat and SZA won big at the Grammys on April 3, taking home the award for best pop duo/group performance for their song “Kiss Me More.” During their acceptance speech, Doja Cat got emotional about her first-ever Grammy win.

After the award was announced, SZA made her way to the stage on crutches (with some help from Lady Gaga), but Doja still made it to the mic after her. It turns out, Doja had decided to go to the bathroom right before the award was announced and had to hurry back to accept it. “I have never taken such a fast piss in my whole life,” she said as she fixed her dress, a little out of breath.

“I really appreciate it,” she continued. “Thank you to everybody, my family, my team, I wouldn’t be here without you and I wouldn’t be here without my fans.” She then turned to SZA, saying, “And you know what, SZA? You are everything to me. You are incredible. You’re the epitome of talent. You’re a lyricist, you’re everything. And I just need you to say something.”

SZA took the mic and said, “Thank you, Doja; thank you to my momma; thank you to God and just thank all of y’all.” Then she said to Doja, “I’m glad you made it back in time.” The two women hugged as the crowd cheered and Doja started to cry. As she wiped tears away, Doja said, “I like to downplay sh*t. But this? It’s a big deal.” She thanked everyone again before she and SZA walked off.

Doja had a huge night at the Grammys. She was up for eight awards. “Kiss Me More” was also nominated for record of the year and song of the year, and her album “Planet Her (Deluxe)” was nominated for album of the year and best pop vocal album. Her track “Need to Know” was up for best melodic rap performance, and her collab with Saweetie, “Best Friend,” was nominated for best rap song. She also appeared as a featured artist on Lil Nas X‘s “Montero,” also nominated for album of the year. In 2021, she was nominated for three Grammys. This was also SZA’s first Grammy win; she was nominated five times for her 2017 album “Ctrl.”
