Billie Eilish Makes History as Youngest Artist to Win Grammys in 4 Biggest Categories
Billie Eilish had a monumental night at the Grammys on Sunday. After becoming the youngest person to receive nominations in all four major categories – including album of the year, record of the year, song of the year, and best new artist – the 18-year-old made history yet again when she won all the aforementioned awards. She also made history as the youngest artist to receive album of the year, a record which was previously held by Taylor Swift.
During her acceptance speech for song of the year, Eilish took a moment to reflect on the special honour. “I feel like I joke around a lot and I never take anything seriously at these kind of things, but I genuinely want to say I’m so grateful,” she said before passing the mic to her brother and best friend, Finneas O’Connell. He then gave a shout-out all the aspiring musicians who are currently writing music in their bedrooms. “You’re gonna get one of these,” he said, holding up his Grammy.
