Los Angeles, 27 January 2020 (dpa/MIA) – Billie Eilish took home the coveted song of the year Grammy Sunday night for her 2019 hit “Bad Guy.” She accepted the award with her “best friend,” collaborator and brother, Finneas, both of whom appeared stunned by their win.
“Wow, wow, wow, wow,” Eilish began her speech. “So many other songs deserved this, I’m sorry.”
Coming into the ceremony, Eilish scored six nominations, tying with fellow Gen Z phenom Lil Nas X for the second-most nominations after Lizzo’s eight. Her anti-pop earworm “Bad Guy” nabbed three nods for record, song and pop solo performance.
When she was 17, she became the youngest artist in history to receive nominations in all top four categories: best new artist, song, record and album.
She’s also the youngest to have ever been recognized for album of the year for her chart-topping debut, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”
