Billie Eilish wins all four major Grammys in one night

Billie Eilish wins all four major Grammys in one night

Eilish triumphed in all of the Grammys "big four" marquee categories - song of the year, record of the year, album of the year and best new artist.

Eilish won album of the year and pop vocal album (for "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?"), song of the year (for "Bad Guy"), new artist, engineered album (for Finneas' work on "When We All Fall Asleep"), and producer of the year, non-classical (Finneas). (Grande waved off the comments, ceding the prize back to the winner).

Yet the centerpiece of the tune was the furious solo she ripped on a sparkling flute that descended from above the stage on a small platform - the rare display of old-fashioned instrumental dexterity on a show that can often make music feel like an afterthought.

Anderson.Paak, featuring André 3000, has won Best R&B Performance for "Come Home" at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. Lizzo announced atop Sunday's broadcast before launching into a powerful performance of "Cuz I Love You", the title track off her multi-nominated album.

It was like, wow. "Trying to remember him today as the pure, smiling, excited 17 year old coming into the league in 1996". At the sports bar, Sanderlin flipped through old photos on her phone and found one of her 25-year-old son with Bryant.

With so many epic televised performances already under Lizzo's belt, it's hard to believe that Sunday marked her first time singing live on the Grammys.

You can see a clip of her speech below.

In August, Eilish became the first musician born in the 2000s to top the Billboard Hot 100, dethroning Lil Nas X's record-breaking 19-week streak thanks to his viral hit "Old Town Road".
