Billie Eilish broke records and swept at the 2020 Grammys, winning five awards, including best new artist and best song of the year. The 19-year-old star was the youngest person ever to win the prestigious award. For 2021 she earned four Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year for “Everything I Wanted.” Scroll down to find out if Eilish can win again!
Billie Eilish 2020 triumphed at the Grammys 2020, winning five awards, including best new artist, song of the year and she also won album of the year for her debut, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go,” which was recorded with the collaboration of her older brother Finneas O’Connell in her childhood home in Los Angeles.
She won the biggest awards in one night at the Grammy Awards on 26th January 2020, becoming only the second artist to do it (since Christopher Cross in 1981) and she was the youngest, only a teenager!
Finneas also became the youngest recipient of the Music Producer of the Year Grammy Award for his collaboration creating Eilish’s record.
Did you know that if Billie Eilish wins again at the 2021 Grammys she would be only the third artist in music history to achieve the Record of the Year category award? Eilish is nominated this year for her superb song “Everything I Wanted.” This song is up for multiple awards: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance.
The first musician to make history at the Grammy awards was Roberta Flack. She won Record of the Year in 1973 for “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” and then she triumphed again in 1974 for another memorable classic, “Killing Me Softly with His Song.”
In 2001 the Irish rock band U2 doubled up, winning for “Beautiful Day” and then they won again with “Walk On” in 2002. Both songs came from their album “All That You Can’t Leave Behind,” which makes it the only album ever in history to produce two Record of the Year winners.
Eilish has a great chance of winning because of the fact that “Everything I Wanted” is one of only four songs to be nominated for both Record and Song of the Year. This suggests that the star is counting on a greater support from the recording academy. When stars, such as Adele have won in the past, (she won five Grammys in 2017) they have tended to win big. The Grammys just loves to recognize its favorite stars with multiple awards!
The other contenders are Beyonce‘s “Black Parade,” Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” and Post Malone’s “Circles.” There is an outside chance that the voters might be reluctant to give Eilish the biggest trophies again right after she grabbed all the gramophones trophies in 2020.
However, we believe that Billie is still a big favorite at the Grammys and she has a long and successful career ahead of her. We put our money on Eilish to be the newest and youngest singer to earn a Record of the Year achievement!
