SZA and Doja Cat took home one of the Grammy Awards’ most prestigious awards on Sunday night, scooping the prize for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their collaboration on their hit “Kiss Me More.”

The “Broken Clocks” singer accepted the award on crutches and had to be helped on stage, sparking concern from fans.

The 32-year-old revealed that a leg injury was the reason for the crutches, and explained to reporters at the ​​Las Vegas ceremony on Sunday night that she hurt herself in a “very funny” manner prior to the event.

“It’s very funny because I fell out of bed right before it was time to leave and get ready for this,” the singer—whose given name is Solána Imani Rowe—told reporters, per Billboard.

“Like the day before, but that’s the way it goes. Everything awesome in my life has always come with something like very random, but it just adds to the energy.”

Doja Cat—whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini—praised SZA while the pair was on stage accepting their award after the former ran to the stage as she was in the bathroom while their win was announced.

“I have never taken such a fast p*** in my whole life,” she joked. “Thank you, everybody. I really appreciate it.

“SZA, you are everything to me,” she said. “You are incredible. You are the epitome of talent.”

She went on the say, tearfully: “I like to downplay s***. But this? It’s a big deal.”

While SZA joked: “I’m glad you made it back in time.”

SZA previously performed with a torn ligament at the 60th annual Grammy Awards back in 2018.

“I don’t really have a plan, but we’re gonna, like, wing this,” she said on stage at the time, while holding the microphone stand for support, per Billboard.

Lady Gaga had helped SZA with the train on her dress as she made her way to the stage, in a sweet moment that is going viral on Twitter.

One clip of the touching gesture, posted by MTV News has amassed more than 1.7 million views at the time of writing.

Lady Gaga was also nominated in this category along with Tony Bennett, along with BTS, Coldplay and Justin Bieber & Benny Blanco.

SZA and Doja Cat’s win prompted anger from BTS fans who felt the K-pop superstars were snubbed.

The South Korean supergroup was nominated for their hit song “Butter.”
