The 18-year-old was recognized for some of her chart-topping songs from her debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?. She won five out of six awards she was nominated for, taking home wins in the four biggest categories.
Christopher Cross was the first person to ever win all four awards back in 1981. Now, Eilish is the second person and first female to win all four major Grammys categories in one night. With Cross being 29 the year he won, Eilish is also the youngest to sweep the four awards at age 18.
Norah Jones came close in 2003, sweeping the four categories and taking home three out of the four awards herself. Songwriter Jesse Harris snagged the fourth by winning Song of the Year for her work on Jones’ “Don’t Know Why.” Adele has also won all of the big four Grammys but did so across two years in 2009 and 2012.
This year, Eilish was nominated against Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Rosalia and more for Best New Artist.
“I feel like the fans deserve everything, I feel like they have not been talked about enough tonight,” Eilish said. “I love all fandoms. Thank you to the fans, you make this worth it.”

FINNEAS also talked about how they wrote an album about tough issues like depression and climate change that wasn’t supposed to win a Grammy that was met with major applause by the audience. Check out that below.
After that, she won Record of the Year for “bad guy.” At that point, she and FINNEAS just said: “thank you.” You can see that below.
Earlier in the night, Eilish won Song Of The Year alongside her brother FINNEAS for “bad guy”. You can see a clip of their speech below.
Before their win, the pair brought the emotion during their debut Grammys performance of “when the party’s over” from Eilish’s chart-topping debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?.
FINNEAS played piano beautifully while Eilish belted out the track. They both wore matching glittery outfits that were pretty much everything. You can see a video of their performance below.
