Lorde came out a big winner at this year's GRAMMY Awards as her smashing debut single "Royals" snagged Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. After winning the latter honor the singer told the audience, "This is the one thing I did not expect the most about tonight, so thank you so much."

Earning two statues—including one of the "big four"—at your first GRAMMYs is already an incredible feat. But the wins become even more impressive when you remember the New Zealand native is just 17 years old. The accomplishment makes her one of the youngest GRAMMY winners ever

Lorde joins the ranks of fellow 2014 GRAMMY winners Rihanna and Adele plus other top pop acts like Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift and Beyonce, all of whom won a statue before turning 21.

Oh, and of course, congrats, Lorde!
