The English singer won the 'Top Hot 100 Song' prize for his hit 'Dynamite'. He became emotional when he received the accolade, revealing that it was the first time he has been able to accept an award on stage.

"This is the first time I've received an award and come up here to receive it," Cruz explained. "I'm very, very nervous right now."

The star went on to express his appreciation for his fans.

"I would like to thank my friends and family," he added. "And of course all my fans."

The singer recently revealed that he plans to work on different genres of music in the future, such as dubstep and rock.
