Billie Eilish Sweeps Grammys 2020 / Becomes Youngest Artist Ever to Win ‘Album of the Year’

Published: Sunday 26th Jan 2020 by Rashad

Big names like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, and Taylor Swift may have been among the leading nominees at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards (January 26), but it’s pretty safe to say the night belonged to the new class.

Lizzo‘s ‘Truth Hurts’ hurt the competition in multiple categories including snatching honors in Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Urban Contemporary, and Best Traditional R&B Performance categories while ‘Old Town Road’ star Lil Nas X rode ahead of his competitors in ‘Best Pop Duo/Group Performance’ and ‘Best Music Video’ fields.

However, if anyone would be crowned the night’s champion it would be 18-year-old newcomer Billie Eilish.  See why inside:


Eilish swept the top categories at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night (January 26) by claiming album of the year, best new artist, song of the year, record of the year, and best pop vocal album.  The history-making wins make her the second female act in history to win all four awards (after Adele), but first female to win them all in one night.

Note:  In 1981, ‘Sailing‘ singer Christopher Cross became the first artist to win all  “big four” awards – album, record, song, and best new artist of the year – in one night.

The feat makes her the youngest artist to ever sweep the top four at the ceremony and also take home its biggest honor (album of the year), a record once held by Taylor Swift.  Interestingly, the latter – usually a Grammy darling – was unceremoniously shut out of this year’s competition (click here to read more).

Curious to know who else walked away with trophies at tonight’s event?  The full winner’s list awaits by clicking here.

      The biggest loser of all time.
      ????
      So now u stan billie eilish, normani doesnt have any achievements that’s why u have to mention another artiste to further ur argument.
      Typical normani stans

      • Only facts January 27, 2020

        Keep my name out of your mouth. First off, you @ me on someone else’s comment. And secondly, I’m only allowed to like Normani? You’re obsess, mentally insane, and a menace to society. Get a life. You live on this website. It’s truly sad

      • Clarks0oñ January 27, 2020

        Bìtch is u.

      • Tori January 27, 2020

        The “HavanaONana” account hasn’t posted in weeks yet AS SOON as Only Facts say something about it, it’s conveniently posting under a “Clarkson” argument…

      • only facts January 27, 2020

        Thank you, Tori!

    • Only Facts January 27, 2020

      The only one creating multiple accounts on here is you. Just like you used to continuously post under “HavanaONaNa”…what happened to that account? The only one holding an L tonight is you and Camila. Get a life and stop living on this site. It’s unhealthy to be obsessed with Normani. It’s demented, and pretty alarming how you talk about her in every GD post. Get help before we all call the authorities

      • Clarks0oñ January 27, 2020

        Blah blah blah

        Gurl we know Is u

        You Stan for someone that doesn’t even have a number one in bubbling hot 100

        Lol @ #126 for the McDonald’s performer

    • Charli Cheer Up January 27, 2020

      Yeah PJ Norton’s Say So won a Grammy and it featured JoJo. Congrats to all the winners! Wish ma gurl Charli could win one day. Doesn’t matter if its as a songwriter or artist.

  2. Jeans January 26, 2020

    Congrats to Billie!!!

  3. Kevin January 26, 2020

    I can see it! Say what you want but Lizzo, Billie, Vampire weekend, Maggie Rogers and Caroline Polachek were the only ones who actually did something musically this year that’s worth talking about! Everyone is getting lazy! I was rooting for Summer Walker but Imma take the L with her!

    • Only facts January 27, 2020

      Right!!! Maggie deserves to win best new artist! HIAPL was a masterpiece and deserved more nominations! Sigh. It’s all a popularity contest

      • Kevin January 27, 2020

        ??‍♂️ Unfortunately yes! lol I give up on media, award shows and charts! You have to be a really strong person these days to not get any recognition and keep going!

    • Paulo January 27, 2020

      Over It was released past the deadline. She’ll get her due noms next year

  4. 1988 January 27, 2020

    Legendary slay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  5. Meme January 27, 2020

    I haven’t listened to her album in its entirety but from what I’ve heard she’s the only artist deserving of every single award. This year was full of sh*tty releases. I can’t think of anyone off hand who actually had a good release this year. Hopefully 2020 is the year of great projects. Really looking forward to DVSN, Rihanna and Normani.

    • You Tried January 27, 2020

      You’re crazy Lizzo’s album was amazing

  6. Hmmm… January 27, 2020

    I like some of Billie’s stuff and she’s talented, but she’s also very overrated. However, every time she snatched an award from Ariana my heart smiled. ???

    • You Tried January 27, 2020

      Why? They’re friends weirdo..as you can see she praised Ariana in her speech now smoke at that

  7. King Khia January 27, 2020

    Billie has is overrated and is celebrated because she looks like a non binary queeeer weirdo feminist at an anti Trump rally. She will be largely over by 2023.

    • Misty Knight January 27, 2020

      And you look like her hairy, jizz-guzzling brother-mother birthed from an ape.

    • Queen Nicki Minaj January 27, 2020

      I thought you said “Motivation” will win Record of the Year ?
      ????

      Your idol has zero nomination
      No #1 in Billboard hot 100
      No #1 in Billboard Bubbling Hot 100

      With all this free shootouts from celebrities lol

      You Stan for a McDonald’s performer

      • only facts January 27, 2020

        When did I say that? You’re pathetic and creating lies because you support a racist rat that will NEVER win a Grammy, no matter how much men she gets on her knees for. You never win when you play dirty.

  9. Paulo January 27, 2020

    I was surprised they took Song and Record of the year home too. I thought Truth Hurts would get at least one of them but ooh well Lizzo got 3 and Billie seems like a sweet kid and positive role model

    • Shayla Queen January 27, 2020

      “They”

      ????

      • Paulo January 27, 2020

        Billie and her producer. Go wash your dry stank p**** and log off dumb ass ho #Shower4Shayla

      • Shayla Queen January 27, 2020

        Yuh dun know mi mek yuh mad! Pu$$yclaaaaaat!!!!!! ???

        Don’t fück with a Jamaican Queen.

      • Paulo January 27, 2020

        Don’t f*** with a syphilis maggot brewing broke ass delusional ho #Shower4Shayla

  10. A&R January 27, 2020

    I happy for them but at the same time for so disrespected. I can’t say I’ve ever been upset after the awards shows but… wow. Diddy is right. These people legit spit in the faces of black artist.

  11. Fancy BISH January 27, 2020

    Congrats to her, but I gotta say this…if Billie swept, then Aaliyah should’ve swept…PERIODTT. It’s like damn, black people have to bend over backwards, do gymnastic Olympic flips, create new genres and still get the “nah” at the Grannys lol…white people get to be average, ok and “good” and sweep…Bad Guy is a hit, but Timbaland and Missy BEEN did that with Aaliyah, style and all…but we gotta be quiet ya’ll…OH HELL NAW, you’re gonna hear my mouth ? Record companies and award shows have much higher standards for black people (??) because they want our soul, style and flavor…they want us to create it from scratch so they can take…said what I said, I’ll be eating the rest of my chicken parm waiting for a commenter to come test me now ? And I know SWV saw her long nails too, mmhmm ???

    • Tori January 27, 2020

      Good point

    • Shayla Queen January 27, 2020

      I agree with this! It’s so weird as when I saw the Everything I Wanted video, I noticed a slight Aaliyah vibe and I couldn’t put my finger on it. Aaliyah WAS and STILL IS ahead of her time. Aaliyah was the one. Aaliyah, Tim & Missy were the perfect team and will never be duplicated. It was organic and they did it for the love of music.

  12. HavanaONana January 27, 2020

    Congrats Billie!!!!

    Meanwhile Camila’s Grammy performance is awesome as usual while fifth Harmony watching at home. Lol

  13. HavanaONana January 27, 2020

    Where’ s the nomination for Normani’s motivation? Ugh I wanted her to win In “Best Rap Song” LMFAO

    What happened?

  14. Charli Cheer Up January 27, 2020

    Congrats to Billie and her brother well deserved! Good to see that artists that Lorde and Lana Del Rey paved the way for are doing well. Without their success these record labels wouldn’t invest their time on artists like Billie and Alessia Cara.

    • Shayla Queen January 27, 2020

      Lana deserved the award for Norman Fücking Rockwell over Billie’s album.

  15. MessyBoots January 27, 2020

    Wow. Such a joke. Every year.

    Isnt there a huge controversy surrounding the Grammy voting committees recently after the president of the recording academy just revealed the process is rigged alongside claims of voter fraud, racism and sexism?!!

    We all know its rigged but someone on the inside finally admitting it and now this? ?

    According to Billboard, the last person to ever sweep the ‘Big 4’ categories is an artist known as Christopher Cross in 1983.

    Of all the iconic acts to emerge from that decade (Lionel Richie, Madonna, Prince, Whitney, Cyndi Lauper, Journey, Michael, Janet etc) they gave the Big 4 awards to none of them EXCEPT Christopher Cross?!! An act no one remembers 35 years later?!! No iconic act from the 90s achieved this either? And yet Billie Eillish becomes the 2nd artist in 35 years to achieve that?!!!

    Billie Ellish???!!!! ??

    • Shayla Queen January 27, 2020

      Bad Guy winning a Grammy? That’s insane, as much as I do like most of Billie’s music.But that song isn’t it… Lana Del Rey definitely deserved 2 of the awards that Billie walked away with. Lana deserves the recognition at this point.

    • PinotNoir January 27, 2020

      Good! If anything, it’s a preview of what awaits this parrot-haired, ASMR-with-beats teen.

      • MessyBoots January 27, 2020

        Lol @ ASMR with beats teen ??

        Dont get me wrong, I’m not discrediting or taking away from whatever talent she has, but seriously, no one is going to be singing Bad Guy in 35 plus years.

        The Grammys alongside Billboard and The Oscar’s are a joke.

  16. Fanciest BISH January 27, 2020

    I read somewhere she is also the first artist to win all 4 major awards… she really slayedd Ariana at her peak huh….

  17. tyty January 27, 2020

    And yet black artists have to literally pray for a miracle in order to win one of the big four. Yet white mediocracy and good enough is constantly awarded. This is exactly why the big black stars no longer go award shows and it shows in how average and p*** poor award shows are without our talent, culture and style. Just a bunch of untalented average musicians awarding each other. What a shame.

    • Oh plz January 27, 2020

      #FACTS!!!

  18. Swirly January 27, 2020

    She will fall off just like Lorde, Megan Trainor and other fad artists. Congrats.

    • Cûûmila Cebolla January 27, 2020

      Just like no one will remember Slûtiana Grande in a few years. We already have Mariah.

    • only facts January 27, 2020

      Hopefully Billie doesn’t fall victim to the “Best New Artist” winner curse that impacted everyone else. I still can’t believe how badly it came for Meghan Trainor. She was supposed to be the next big thing. But I think Billie will be okay. She’s creative

      • Queen Nicki Minaj January 28, 2020

        The funny part is impacted nomani even though she’s not nominated LMFAO?

  19. POPS Muva January 27, 2020

    Cheap imitation of Lorde. anyways

  20. PinotNoir January 27, 2020

    Yuck

  21. #TheTruth January 27, 2020

    All I have to say it’s not about the awards or popularity to make a career in the long run.
    Lorde anyone…? What is she doing now ? I guess still doing music but certainly not on the same level.
    Don’t get me wrong, I wish her the best.

  22. Misty Knight January 27, 2020

    Nothing for Cuntmilla CUMmayo or Ari’sANUS Grande. I’m okay with the world.
