Kina Grannis checked in with fans on her YouTube channel after winning the Doritos contest and having a clip of her ‘Message From Your Heart’ performance aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday and getting a record deal with Interscope.
She writes, “Thanks to all of your help and support – I did it!! My music video aired yesterday after the first quarter of the Super Bowl… and much crying and craziness ensued. I can’t express how truly bizarre this all is. But it is amazing.”
“Yesterday was the craziest day ever,” Kina said in the video. “I would have posted yesterday but I would have been crying constantly and very unattractive, not that I’m attractive now, but I look better than yesterday at least. This whole week was really crazy. Doritos brought us out to Phoenix, me and the other two finalists, Landon Austin and Nivla Named. We did some press things. It was really fun. I got to know the guys really well. They’re all amazing people.”
