Halvorsen was part of a special mega-fan segment, which saw multiple devotees explain why they thought their beloved artist should win the prestigious Album of the Year (AOTY) award, which premiered during the ceremony.

That pre-recorded video featured clips of the 78-year-old granny and her daughter flying 4,000 kilometres to Los Angeles to watch Styles on his Harry’s House tour.
Halvorsen’s granddaughter calls her Harry’s “number one fan” as Halvorsen danced at the LA show.

Well, last night Halvorsen got a special opportunity thanks to Grammy’s host Trevor Noah.
The final moment came to announce the AOTY winner, which saw all of the superfans lined up on stage, hoping and praying their favourite artist would be crowned.
As Noah rips open the envelope, he turns around and pivots toward Queen Reina, telling her she can make the announcement herself.
This show is going really long, but at least I got to listen to an old lady from Sudbury talk about how many Harry Styles concerts she went to.

Of course, the audience quickly realized this meant Styles won the category and an audible gasp went through the crowd.

Appearing shocked, Halvorsen shrieks “Harry Styles,” as she jumps up and down and the camera pans to Styles shaking his head in disbelief.

Since that night, Canadians have been showing their love for Halvorsen, calling her the Grammy Queen.
Reina won. She was right. She hugged Harry. Got a kiss from Harry. Got a fist bump from Harry. This is what dreams are made of. Cannot wait for her to do the Sudbury media circuit to talk about this moment. #GRAMMYs #GrammyAwards pic.twitter.com/PoThoiT1Mf

Many remark the highlight of the entire night was watching Halvorsen’s pure excitement and joy.
Maybe now, Styles will make a special stop in Sudbury to visit his superfan!
