"I can't believe I'm standing here right now on Radio City Music Hall's stage for the worst dancing that ever appeared on Broadway," she exclaimed, giving shout-outs to her fellow nominees before tearfully thanking "every friend I've ever had, every teacher I've ever had and everyone I've ever met!" She ended her giddy speech with an especially sweet, "have a good night!"
