How did Shankar Mahadevan feel after winning his first Grammy?

During the same interview, Shankar Mahadevan claimed that he completely blacked out at Los Angeles' Crypto.Com auditorium when his band Shakti's This Moment was announced as the winner of best global music album, earning him his first Grammy. "The Grammys stage is the epitome of world music recognition. I was very happy and blessed to be a small part of this recognition and the fact that Indian music was appreciated worldwide. That's a great feeling. I'd like to thank god for giving me this opportunity," he said.
