H.E.R. took home another GRAMMY Award Sunday night, and while the news came as a surprise to the R&B artist, it wasn't to ET's Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner. ET spoke to H.E.R. on the red carpet at the 64th annual awards show, where they informed the 24-year-old singer that she took home the GRAMMY for Best Traditional R&B Performance.

"Wow so you come here and you're already winning," Kevin told H.E.R. "You already won! You've won already."

"Oh my gosh, wait what did I win?" H.E.R. asked before Kevin double checked the show's official winner's list.

"I haven't won anything," H.E.R. maintained. "It's not confirmed, it's not confirmed."

While the "For Anyone" singer insisted that she hadn't won an award yet, she told Kevin and Nischelle that she was manifesting a win, adding that she was already a winner by just being at Sunday's show.

"But you know what? That's right, I am a winner tonight because we're here," she said. "That's a win. To be here is a win."

And it looked like that manifestation worked, because moments later, Kevin was able to confirm that H.E.R. had in fact taken home the trophy for Best Traditional R&B Performance for her song, "Fight For You."

"Hold on, wait, I can confirm now, you have won best R&B original performance," Kevin shared. "What?" H.E.R. asked.

"I'm here to tell you," Kevin confirmed. "No way!" she exclaimed. "We won? Oh my gosh! Wow. Well, hey, this is a great day."

While the award wasn't presented to H.E.R., during the show's live telecast, Kevin and Nischelle prompted her to use the exciting moment to give a quick speech.

"Well, I can't say that I didn't win a GRAMMY today, and I'm so grateful," she gushed of the track, from the Oscar-winning film, Judas: and the Black Messiah. "This song -- it wasn't something I thought would have me here. It's a song that I felt like was so powerful, a part of a big story that was so powerful, and still relevant to today."

"I'm just so grateful to have been a part of that movie... For people to love the movement and be a part of this fight, that I think is ongoing, it means the world to me," H.E.R. added.

In addition to her big win, H.E.R. performed at Sunday night's show, where she was joined onstage by Travis Barker, Lenny Kravitz, Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam for a spotlight-stealing performance that brought down the house. She opened with the epic medley, "Damage," before moving on to "We Made It" with Barker on drums. Finally, she wrapped the whole thing up with an amazing cover of "Are You Gonna Go My Way."
