At the 62nd annual Grammy Awards, Billie Eilish sweeped the charts, broke records, and was nominated for the Big Four of the Grammy Awards.
January 26th was the 62nd grammy awards. There were many interesting performances. From Aerosmith and Dmc doing a fusion performance together, to Demi Lovato’s beautiful piano ballet, even to the most questionable Ariana Grande performance. Along with the performances, something very shocking happened that night. We all know Billie Eilish. She is the singer, songwriter who has recently become immensely popular these last two years . She has gained more attention over these last few months but this year was her time to break out. She is in the prime of her career and only 18. What makes it even more astounding that she won 5 Grammys! Not only that, but she is the first woman and the first person in 36 years to take home the Big Four: Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist. Her hit song “Bad Guy” won her both Record and Song of the Year.
She won five different grammys, just after announcing that she will be on the new James Bond soundtrack. Talk about luck. Her performance was also very heart warming as she did a ballet with her brother, songwriter,musician, and recording artist Finneas Eilish. She also sang her latest hit”When the Party’s Over.” Billie was nominated for 6 awards and won 5 of those nominations. She won Record of the Year, Best New Artist, Song of the Year, and Album of the year. If you didn’t think she had won enough awards, she also won Best Pop Vocal Album for “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”.
Billie has been making music for a while now, but only her recent music has been gaining widespread media attention. Her brother Finneas helps her with her songwriting and has helped create some of her hits. Her debut Album was March 29,2019. It’s been number one on the charts of multiple countries including, the U.K , U.S, Australia, and Canada.
After receiving her awards she had this to say;
“…all the artists that were nominated deserved it, i’m so sorry…” and “…can I just say that Ariana Grande deserves this award…”
as the camera turns back to Ariana, who is reassuring Billie that she deserves the award.
Out of all of the winners of the 2020 Grammy Awards, Billie Eilish stood out by far. Breaking the most records this year and becoming one of the most influential music icons of the past dec
