Grammy Awards 2024: Miley Cyrus wins her first ever award for her single ‘Flowers’

She received the prized award from veteran singer Mariah Carey and described the moment as ‘iconic’

Miley Cyrus has just won her first Grammy.

Cyrus won Best Pop Solo Performance for her song ‘Flowers’. She won over Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, and Taylor Swift. Mariah Carey, a veteran singer, presented her with the prestigious trophy. People reports that Cyrus began her address with a shout-out to Carey.


“This is just too iconic,” she stated.

She said she was “stuck in the rain and traffic” and worried she was going to “miss” the first award of the night, “and I could’ve missed the award, that’s fine, but not Mariah Carey. I just saw you at the Hollywood Bowl, it was everything.”

“I got stuck in my lucky number three seat and so there’s a story I want to tell that sums up this moment and I wasn’t going to tell it, but now Mariah’s here,” she said, as she went onto to share: “So there was a little boy that all he wanted for his birthday was a butterfly. And so his parents gave him a butterfly net and he was so excited. He just went outside, out in the sun, and started swinging and swinging. But with no luck. He sat down on the ground he finally let go and he surrendered and he was okay that he wasn’t gonna capture this beautiful butterfly. And right when he did is when the butterfly came and landed right on the tip of his nose.”

Carey said “aw” in the background as Cyrus recounted the story before adding, “This song ‘Flowers’ is my butterfly. Thank you.”

‘Flowers’ was Cyrus’ first single off the album ‘Endless Summer Vacation’. Following its release, it topped the Billboard charts in the United States for eight weeks and became the most-streamed song in a single week on Spotify.
