Billie Eilish couldn’t stop taking home Grammys, adding Best New Artist, Album of the Year and Record of the Year to her list of awards.
The 18-year-old was recognized for some of her chart-topping songs from her debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?. She won five out of six awards she was nominated for, taking home wins in the four biggest categories.
Christopher Cross was the first person to ever win all four awards back in 1981. Now, Eilish is the second person and first female to win all four major Grammys categories in one night.
Norah Jones came close in 2003, sweeping the four categories and taking home three out of the four awards herself. Songwriter Jesse Harris snagged the fourth by winning Song of the Year for her work on Jones’ “Don’t Know Why.”
This year, Eilish was nominated against Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Rosalia and more for Best New Artist.
“I feel like the fans deserve everything, I feel like they have not been talked about enough tonight,” Eilish said. “I love all fandoms. Thank you to the fans, you make this worth it.”
