In her speech, she gave a shout-out to the channel that gave her her big break a decade ago.

The 7 Rings artist said: 'Nickelodeon will always hold such a tremendous space in my heart. Not only because of Victorious and Sam & Cat, and the amazing years I spent working with them... but also just for SpongeBob, you know?'

'So I've always, uh, I'm always very honored to be a part [of this].' 

And the 26-year-old continued: 'I wanna say thank you so much for all your love and for making me your Favorite Female Music Star. I really appreciate it. And I love you guys so much. Thank you so much. Mwah! Love you.'
