Martina Robledo will make history this weekend.
The model will be the first transgender ‘trophy girl’ in the history of the awards show.
‘I know it’s going to make some people uncomfortable and make others weep for joy,’
‘I’m just going to step out there and strut and make sure I deliver my best, because there’s people out there looking up to me.’
Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy, said in a statement: ‘To be honest, the idea of a “trophy girl” has felt antiquated for some time now. Who wrote that rule anyway? The ability to present a trophy has nothing to do with one’s gender.’
The Grammys takes place on Sunday (12 February) in Los Angeles.
