From TikTok to the Grammy Premiere Ceremony Stage, Emily Bear and Abigail Barlow Won their first ever Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album.

Emily Bear and Abigail Barlow won the best musical theater Grammy on Sunday afternoon for “The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical.”

Emily Bear and Abigail Barlow’s Grammy win for best musical theater album for “The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical” marks the first award from the Recording Academy to go to a project that originated on TikTok.

Bear and Barlow beat out Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Cinderella,” the cast recording of “Girl from the North Country,” “Les Misérables: The Staged Concert” and “Stephen Schwartz’s Snapshots.”

They gleefully accepted the award, noting the project began a year ago by asking what “Bridgerton” would be like if it was a musical.

“A year ago when I asked the internet, ‘What if ‘Bridgerton’ was a musical?’ I could not have imagined we would be holding a Grammy in our hands. We want to thank everyone on the internet who has watched us create this album from the ground up, we share this with you.”

Bear took a moment to acknowledge the importance of her win in her acceptance speech, saying…

“This is really for all of my fellow female producers, composers, engineers that are still struggling to gain recognition and support for what we do. It’s not that we don’t exist, we do.”

LeVar Burton presented them the honor during the Grammys Premiere Ceremony, where more than 70 awards are handed out.
