American teenage sensation, Billie Eilish, who sang “Bad Guy” has made history in the music industry after making impressive wins at the biggest stage of music awards and appreciation in the whole world, The Grammy Awards of 2020.

At the show that was hosted by Alicia Keys, Billie Eilish won best vocal pop album, album of the year and record of the year (When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?), song of the year (“Bad Guy”) and best new artist.

As if winning big wasn’t enough, she became the youngest person to be nominated for, and to win, awards in all four general-field categories (album of the year, record of the year, song of the year and best new artist) in a single outing.

“I never thought this would happen in my whole life. I feel like I jump around at these things and I never take anything seriously, but I genuinely want to say that I’m so grateful and I’m honored to be here.” The 18 year old said in her acceptance speech for song of the year.

The awards ceremony paid tribute to fallen basketball star Kobe Bryant when in her opening monologue, Alicia Keys was joined by Boys II Men to sing a moving tribute for the former LA Lakers shooting guard. Kobe died in a helicopter crash along with his daughter GiGi Bryant.

“We’re literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built.” Alicia Keys said at the Staples Center, this year’s venue for the Grammy Awards.
