Meghan Trainor received a special surprise on Wednesday’s episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The Nantucket native, who recently won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist, revealed to the day time host that she hasn’t actually taken home the trophy yet because winners aren’t shipped their actual awards until after the ceremony (the ones presented on stage are just stand-ins).

Well, DeGeneres was able to pull some strings and surprised Trainor with her fully engraved Grammy.

“Is this real? This whole interview is ruined,” the singer joked while fighting back the tears.

DeGeneres wasn’t the only one with a surprise, as Trainor announced that she will be heading back on tour following the release of her new album Thank You on May 13, and that everyone in the Ellen audience would receive tickets to see her show live. The crowd couldn’t stop cheering after Trainor’s “Oprah” moment.

Once the stars were finished handing out surprises, DeGeneres had a laugh with Trainor as they picked out a celebrity boyfriend for the signer. While the game didn’t include any Boston stars, apparently Trainor has a little crush on Drake which could only be topped by her affection for Leonardo DiCaprio.

Check out a clip from her interview on Ellen below.

Meghan Trainor’s tour will wrap up at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston on September 24.
