Billie Eilish has achieved yet another accomplishment in music history. The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards was on Sunday (January 26, 2020) and Billie Eilish took the show by storm. She not only won Album of the Year for WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?, but she also won Record of the Year with her song “Bad Guy.” Eilish is now the youngest person to have ever received these awards in Grammy history. “Bad Guy” also won her Song of the Year and she continued her winning streak when WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? won Best Pop Vocal Album. The fifth award she won was for Best New Artist.

Four of those albums happen to be the “Big Four” of the Grammy Awards. This makes Billie Eilish the second person to ever win all four in one night. She was the first woman to do this in all 62 years of the Grammy Awards, as well. There are many up-and-coming artists from 2019, but The Grammy Awards really sealed the deal for Eilish and opened her eyes to the fame she’s accumulated over the past three years.

Before the Grammy Awards, she also made two new singles, “All the Good Girls Go to Hell” and “Everything I Wanted.” Both have made it to top 10 on the music charts. In the current media, Billie Eilish is a powerhouse of a celebrity and an inspirational young artist. She continues to break records with the help of her brother, Finneas. She even directs her own music videos, which gain a lot of positive public attention. It will be interesting to see where she goes with her thrilling career.
