Victoria had one of the biggest songs of the summer when she released "On My Mama" earlier this year. Not only did the choreography go viral on TikTok, but you couldn't turn on the radio or a music streaming service without hearing it.

Victoria's name as a performer might sound new to some, but in the industry, she's anything but a newbie. She's widely known for writing music for some of today's biggest artists, including a ton of songs for Ariana Grande ("7 Rings," "Thank U, Next," "34+35," etc.), Chloe x Halle ("Do It"), and more.

So when the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards rolled around on Sept. 12, fans expected to see her grace the stage. Instead, they only saw her in the audience.

Victoria noticed the outpouring of support from fans saying that she deserved to perform at the VMAs. Victoria revealed that MTV told her team it was "too early in [her] story" for her to hit the stage at their awards show.

Whew, baby! Fans were not happy to hear that excuse, especially considering her credentials.

But earlier today, Grammy nominations were announced, and Victoria struck times! The "Coastin'" singer is nominated for Record of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Performance, Best R&B Album, and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.

Victoria, who's set to close out her Jaguar tour next week, submitted herself for 11 categories for the Recording Academy to consider. And for her to be chosen for 7 out of the 11 is a huge win in itself.

Well, fans were right there behind her to celebrate...and, of course, to rub it in MTV's face for making such a big mistake.

Victoria has been nominated for 10 Grammys in her career. She was nominated in 2021 for Best R&B Song for her writing credits on Chloe x Halle's "Do It" and in 2020 for writing on Ariana's Thank U, Next (Album of the Year) and "7 Rings" (Record of the Year).

I know that's right! I couldn't be happier for Victoria!

This is a big year for the R&B girlies, so tune into the Grammys on Feb. 4, 2024, to see how many she collects!
