Billie Eilish racked up at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards last night. The 18-year-old singer-songwriter made history by becoming the first woman to win the big four awards — album of the year, record of the year, song of the year, and best new artist. She is just the second artist to take home all four, following Christopher Cross from 1981.
Eilish’s stunning debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, earned her the album of the year, while “Bad Guy” won record and song of the year. Again, she was also recognized as best new artist.
What’s more, Eilish is now the youngest person to ever win album of the year, outdoing Taylor Swift who won the award for Fearless when she was 20. Eilish is also the youngest artist to win record of the year, a record that was previously shared by Kimbra and Sam Smith, who each won when they were 22. She is the youngest song of the year winner since Lorde won for “Royals” when she was 17. And lastly, Eilish is now the youngest best new artist since LeAnn Rimes earned the award at the age of 14.
In total, Billie Eilish won five Grammys last night, along with her brother and collaborator, FINNEAS. The siblings shared album of the year, record of the year, and song of the year, as FINNEAS also won producer of the year, non-classical and best engineered album, non-classical. At the age of 22, FINNEAS is now the youngest producer of the year, non-classical winner in Grammy history.
Behind Eilish, Lizzo and Gary Clark Jr. each won three Grammys. The Chemical Brothers, Billy Ray Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Nipsey Hussle, Lil Nas X, and Tanya Tucker each won two.
