Camila Cabello performed an emotional "First Man" at the 2020 Grammys tonight (Jan. 26), with a climax that tugged at the heart strings when her father was shown sitting in the front row of the audience. 

Cabello began signing the Romance ballad on stage -- which pays tribute to her father, as the "first man who really loved [her]" -- while flanked with videos of her from her childhood, including her parents. Then, as the camera panned to dad Alejandro tearing up in the audience, Cabello descended the stage to sing directly to him, with the two embracing at the end. 

The pop star was up for one Grammy award on the evening, nominated for best pop duo/group performance for her Hot 100-topping Shawn Mendes duet "Señorita." The award went to Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus for the "Old Town Road" remix.
