And the Is This Real Life? Award to Dazzlyn:

I always knew life had more meaning. 20gayteen and everywhere is shaking. Wow. If you had told me five years ago that girls singing to girls would become a norm in our media, I would have said thank you for the fantasy. And now it’s a reality. We deserve our own songs and stories too. Thank you to these artists for making us seen and represented. We are no longer invisible in music videos.
