Grammys 2023: Watch Bonnie Raitt’s stunned reaction to winning

“Surprised” and “completely humiliated,” Bonnie Raitt received Sunday’s Grammy Award for Song of the Year.

The legendary singer seemed stunned when she won the award for her song “Just Like That” and received a standing ovation from the crowd at the Arena in Los Angeles. During her acceptance speech, she paid tribute to renowned folk musician John Prine, who died of complications from COVID-19 in April 2020.

Alongside “Just Like That” in the Song of the Year category, nominations included “abcdefu” (Gayle), “About Damn Time” (Lizzo), “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)” (Taylor Swift), “As It Was ‘ (Harry Styles), ‘Bad Habit’ (Steve Lacy), ‘Break My Soul’ (Beyoncé), ‘Easy on Me’ (Adele), ‘God Did’ (DJ Khaled) and ‘The Heart Part 5’ ( Kendrick Lamar).

Raitt also took home the Grammy Awards for American roots song (“Just Like That”) and Americana performance (“Made Up Mind”).

Below is her full acceptance speech.

Oh my God. I’m so surprised I don’t know what to say. This is just an unreal moment. Thank you for honoring me, to the whole academy, who surround me with so much support and appreciate the art of songwriting as much as I do. I was so inspired by the incredible story of love, grace and generosity of someone who donates their loved one’s organs to help another person and the story was so simple and so beautiful for that time.

And people responded to the song partly because I and we all love John Prine and that was the inspiration for the music for this song and telling a story from within. …I don’t write many songs, but I’m so proud that you appreciate this one and what that means to me and the rest of the songwriters. …

I wouldn’t be up here tonight if it wasn’t for the art of the amazing, thoughtful, hard working people who set these songs and ideas to music. So Thanks to my team for helping me get this record out. And thank you very much. I’m just so humble. I appreciate it very much. Thank you very much. Grammys 2023: Watch Bonnie Raitt’s stunned reaction to winning
