Lorde hasn't forgotten where she came from. After earning two Grammy awards on Sunday night, the 17-year-old singer took out a full-page ad in the New Zealand Herald to thank her home country.

The ad was actually a love letter to her fans, and reads:

"Hiya. If you are reading this, Joel & I won.
HOLY CRAP.
It was a crazy day & my friends and family over here are still freaking out. I just wanted to say thank you for the time you've given me these past 14 months. Finding out about me online or in between these pages or in your headphone.
Without your support, there's no way I would ever have gotten to stand in the middle of the Staples Centre & perform in my school shoes. I can't wait for tonight's show. Together we'll make it magic.
I'll see you there. xxx L"

Lorde was nominated this year for four Grammys and won Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for her hit single Royals. She is the third youngest winner in Grammy history.
