For the first time, Olivia Rodrigo has taken to the Grammys stage.

Performing an emotional rendition of “drivers license,” the 19-year-old singer began her performance inside a white vintage car before venturing out onto the stage, which was backlit with a screen of a dark suburban street.

The star leaned into her pop punk princess aesthetic, wearing a white Givenchy dress with a ruffled skirt, black fishnet tights, and platform combat boots.

With its angsty punk anthems and bedroom pop ballads, Rodrigo’s debut studio album, Sour, has catapulted her into super pop stardom since its May 2021 release. The Recording Academy has recognized her work tonight with seven nominations: Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Music Video, Album of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album. (She has already won the award for Best Pop Solo Performance.)

Though Rodrigo’s breakout singles have made her name nearly synonymous with “sad girl music,” she plans to venture into new songwriting subjects in the future.

“I’m definitely not as sad as I was when I wrote Sour,” she told ELLE recently. “I’m so excited to make my next record and explore more colors and textures and feelings and grow as a human being even more. I’m really stoked for that.”

While she has “a little distance” from the emotions that inspired her to write songs like “drivers license” and “traitor,” she added, “I actually just feel so proud of them and it’s so much fun to sing them now. … And I just think when you put them out into the world and they help people and make people happy … it’s not quite as devastating anymore. And it’s a very empowering thing.”
