Billie Eilish Wins Record of the Year at Grammys as She Becomes Youngest Artist to Sweep Top 4

Billie Eilish was the youngest person to ever be nominated for all four major categories — and swept all on Sunday night

Billie Eilish might’ve gotten “everything i wanted” tonight.

The 18-year-old musician just earned record of the year for her song “Bad Guy,” meaning the star swept all four major categories of the night, including album of the year, song of the year and best new artist.

The singer, who was the second-most nominated artist of the night, is the youngest musician to ever be nominated — and win — all four.

Eilish skipped a speech, instead taking to the microphone alongside brother and collaborator Finneas O’Connell for a quick “Thank you” in unison before quickly leaving the stage.

The duo had only just left the stage after previously accepting the award for album of the year.

“Mainly I think the fans deserve everything. I feel like they have not been talked about enough tonight, because they’re the only reason any of us are here at all,” Eilish previously told the crowd as she accepted her best new artist prize. “So, thank you to the fans… You guys make this worth it.”
