by admin

It’s been a year now since the last Grammy awards ceremony (62nd) was held on January 26th but it seems like people are still talking about one music artist very much who was a major highlight in the awards ceremony. Billie Eilish, a new pop singer, and an artist won the ‘Big 4’ Grammy awards in one night for the second time in the history of Grammy ceremonies held so far. The first time, it was Christopher Cross who collected all the four awards for the Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist in one night. Billie Eilish took home not only the Big 4 but she won the Album of the Year award too for her album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”. She also renewed the record of Taylor Swift for being the youngest artist to win the Grammy award for Album of the Year. Taylor Swift owned this record by winning the award when she was 20 years old for her album ‘Fearless’. Eilish is 18 years old now and she was nominated for the Big 4 awards when she was only 17 by marking her the youngest artist to get nominated for these major awards.
Grammy awards ceremony is the biggest event in the music industry today. Winning a Grammy award brings value to any artist’s career and success and there is no secret many artists are working towards winning at least one Grammy award. There is also a trend that sales of the albums of the winning artists reach their peak just after the Grammy awards ceremony because it is considered one of the most respected awards in the music industry. Many big names are handing the awards to artists, big names performing, and collecting awards so definitely it is a big event. Billie Eilish winning five Grammy awards in one night just at the age of 18 got the attention of many big names of the music industry as well as the pop music lovers ranking her at the 6th position among the top 10 most searched names in Google during the year 2019.

Billie Eilish being a new artist, so young, and clever enough to win Big 4 Grammy awards would be the future of pop music as she is having a long journey ahead to become a ‘legend’ in pop music history. We know she has the skill, talent, and support she needs from her family and her greatest strength, Finneas O’Connell, her big brother. Eilish has co-written her debut album and released it in March 2019. The album was produced by O’Connell and they recorded the whole album in
O’Connell’s childhood bedroom.
