    Alessia Cara is the winner of the Grammy Award for best new artist, and though she says she's dreamed of the honor for her whole life, she doesn't have a speech planned.

    Cara nervously accepted the award Sunday evening and urged people to "support real music and real artists."

    Cara said at the beginning of her speech: "I've been like pretend winning Grammys since I was kid like in the shower, so you'd think I have the speech thing down but I absolutely don't."

    She held up the award before leaving the stage and said, "My mind is blown."
