It’s been more than two months since Meghan Trainor won the award for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards, but the star hasn’t received her actual trophy until now – and it’s all thanks to Ellen DeGeneres.

During her Tuesday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the singer, whose new album Thank You is out May 13, revealed she was still waiting for her award in the mail.

“It’s not here yet. They’re building it, I guess, from scratch!” Trainor, 22, told DeGeneres. “But it’s coming this month.”

Without missing a beat, DeGeneres unveiled Trainor’s Grammy, telling her, “I called my friends at the Recording Academy and you have your Grammy right here.”

An understandably emotional Trainor – who also announced her “The Untouchable Tour” (tickets go on sale beginning April 29) on the show – welled up with tears.

“We cried a lot that day. Oh gosh, I cry a lot,” she said earlier in the show when chatting about her big win. “That’s life goals right there.”
