Watch Kim Petras & Sam Smith Make GRAMMY History With "Unholy" In 2023 | GRAMMY Rewind
Kim Petras was full of emotions as she and Sam Smith accepted their gramophone for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Unholy" — a game-changing moment for the transgender community.
Smith had Petras take the spotlight after their win, as it marked the first time an openly transgender woman won in the category. After thanking Smith, Petras went on to honor the transgender artists who paved the way — most notably, DJ and producer SOPHIE. "[She] told me this would happen and always believed in me. Thank you so much for your inspiration, SOPHIE," Petras praised. For more episodes of GRAMMY Rewind, visit GRAMMY.com/videos.
