LeAnn! Billie! Britney! The Youngest Artists to Ever Be Nominated for a Grammy Award
Billie Eilish & Finneas O'Connell
The brother-sister duo are each breaking records this year.
Eilish, who just turned 18 but was 17 at the time she was nominated, is the youngest artist to be recognized for the award show's top four categories: album of the year, record of the year, song of the year and best new artist, according to Insider. Meanwhile, O'Connell is the youngest producer ever to be nominated for producer of the year (not alongside a collaborator), according to Billboard.
Rimes was just 14 years old when she won two Grammy Awards: one for best new artist and the other for best female country vocal performance. This made her the youngest Grammy winner in history.
At 12 years old, Gilman made a splash in country music with his first single, "One Voice." The song was nominated for best male country vocal performance. After his early success, he went on to compete on The Voice in 2016.
Now a household name, the Latin artist was successful from the start, winning his first Grammy for best Mexican/Mexican-American album when he was just 14 years old.
When Spears was first nominated for a Grammy in 2000, she was 18 years old — and brought her mom Lynn as her date to the ceremony!
The "Genie in a Bottle" singer took home the Grammy for best new artist in 2000, when she was only 19.
Another 19-year-old Grammy nominee was Rihanna, who went on to win one award for best rap/sung collaboration for "Umbrella" with JAY-Z.
Before Beyoncé released her first solo album (and subsequently took over the world), she was nominated for her first Grammy with Destiny's Child at the 2000 ceremony, for best R&B song and best R&B performance by a duo or group with vocals. At the time, all the group's members were only 19.
In the year of "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi," Lavigne picked up eight Grammy nominations at the sweet young age of 18 (though she didn't go onto win any of them).
Gospel singer Richards is the youngest Grammy nominee in history. She started touring at age 5, and by 8, she was nominated for her first Grammy.
Her song "Royals" hit the airwaves when she was just 16, and a few months after her 17th birthday, Lorde won the award for best pop solo performance and song of the year.
The now-25-year-old was only 16 when he nabbed nominations for best new artist and best pop vocal album.
Zac & Taylor Hanson
For their earworm of a tune "MMMBop," Hanson received three Grammy nominations, which made brothers Zac and Taylor two of the youngest Grammy nominees ever. At the time, Zac was 12 and Taylor was 14.
When Deleon Richards broke the record of youngest Grammy nominee, she nabbed the title from Jackson, who got his first nomination at age 12 for the song "ABC," which he performed with his brothers in The Jackson 5.
