Billie Eilish and Finneas at the 2020 Grammys.

Billie's historic Grammy win sparks debate on twitter!

The 18-year-old has become one of the biggest pop stars in the world after releasing her viral hit ‘Ocean Eyes’ in 2015. She embraced her talent and became the voice of this generation. Billie hit the jackpot at this year's Grammy Awards, by swooping armful of awards. We wonder why she became embarrassed during her acceptance speech. Read below to find out more!

  • Billie has an estimated net worth of $6 million.
  • The 5'3 tall songstress has 64 million followers on Instagram. She uses this platform to promote her music talent as well as her chic style.
  • Eilish scooped the Grammy Award for 'Best Pop Vocal Album'.

Eilish has come a long way on the road of success by creating amazing music over the years. The 2020 Grammys' night was obviously a highlight in Billie's career. She broke records by taking home five out of six awards she was nominated for. 

The youngest pop icon became the second female artist to win 'Album of the Year' since Taylor Swift in 2010. This achievement marked a milestone in her life. She was praised by the audience to reach this level of success at such a young age.

As if it wasn't enough for the family, Billie's brother, Finneas, also took home multiple awards for the album. Looks like all the golden gongs were sent to the Eilish family. Not too shabby for their first time at the Grammys, right? 

Being nominated in the most prestigious categories with talented artists is a lot of pressure. But by topping all the awards in one night is a whole new level of being overwhelmed. Billie's reaction to winning  sparked a huge debate online.


Despite the news being something to celebrate, at times Billie basically apologised for winning. In fact, while waiting for the 'Album of the Year' result to be announced, she can be seen saying, "Please don't be me." She had wanted someone else to take home the awards so people wouldn't think that she was undeserving.

Billie later revealed that she was "embarrassed" by the wins because she was in front of other well-deserving artists, like  Lana Del Rey and Ariana Grande. She has previously referenced the divas as inspirations, with whom the young artist was nominated. That is why she felt embarrassed for winning the Grammy over them on the night. 


From the success of her first studio album, it’s easy to say that Billie Eilish has a bright career in music ahead of her. By making such an impact on the music industry for women and young musicians, Billie Eilish has effectively proven that age is just a number after all. We adore the artist and hope that next year she takes home ten gongs instead of five.
