Billie Eilish’s Reaction To Winning Five Grammy Awards Has Sparked A Ton Of Drama On Twitter
The 18-year-old eclipsed Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, Lady Gaga or Lizzo in a ceremony also marked by tributes to Kobe Bryant.
You will get to know it. At only 18 years old, Billie Eilish, with her iconoclastic pop and her dark universe, achieved the grand slam on Sunday at the Grammy Awards by winning the price of the recording of the year for “Bad Guy” and that of “album of the year “. A ceremony obviously marked by many tributes to the former NBA player Kobe Bryant, who died tragically in a helicopter crash at 41 years old.
Already crowned shortly before “revelation of the year” and “song of the year”, the teenager thus won the bet in the four major categories of the Grammy Awards, the youngest to have achieved such a feat since the beginning of the competition.
Elle a aussi remporté le Grammy du meilleur album vocal pop, s’inclinant seulement face à l’exubérante rappeuse Lizzo dans la catégorie de la « meilleure performance pop solo ».
She also won the Grammy for the best pop vocal album, bowing only to the exuberant rapper Lizzo in the category of “best solo pop performance”.
“Tonight is for Kobe”
The latter also dedicated the Grammy ceremony to the memory of basketball player Kobe Bryant, whose announcement of death had fallen a few hours earlier. “Tonight is for Kobe,” said the rapper before starting her act in the famous Staples Center in Los Angeles, the place where the NBA legend played for years for the team of the Lakers.
The young woman with partially dyed green hair has swept seasoned stars like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey or Lady Gaga, and big names like Lizzo, Lil Nas X or Post Malone.
“Woman of the year 2019” for Billboard magazine
The California artist was among the artists with the most Grammy nominations this year, six in total. Before the release of his album last spring, Billie Eilish had already achieved great success on the internet for his daring pop, marked by heavy bass and mixed with “trap” and electro.
In August, Billie Eilish became the first musician born in the 2000s to climb to the top of the American top 100, dethroning Lil Nas X and her 19-week record with her global success “Old Town Road”. The artist consecrated “woman of the year 2019” by the specialized magazine Billboard also wrote with his brother the official theme of the next part of the adventures of James Bond, “Dying can wait”.
