LOS ANGELES (AP) - Winners at the annual pre-telecast for the Grammy awards are warned to move it or lose it when it comes to acceptance speeches, and Steve Martin took the advice literally.

Martin fast-jogged to the stage after winning best American roots song for his collaboration with Edie Brickell, “Love Has Come for You.”

Martin made it to the stage before realizing he’d left Brickell far behind. He turned around, fetched her and walked the last 50 feet the second time.

“We are truly stunned. I can speak for Edie, and I will,” Martin joked.
