American singer-songwriter, Billie Eilish became the youngest ever to sweep the big four general field categories at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday. The pop star is just 18 years old, and she has already won awards like Best New Artist, Album, Record, and Song of the Year categories. She emerged as the biggest winner at 2020 Grammy Awards that took place at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
However, it was her acceptance speech at 2020 Grammy Awards that has got people talking. Billie Eilish took to the stage after winning album of the year for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? She admitted that Ariana Grande should have been the one to win the honour. Billy Eilish said that she feels Ariana deserves this award. Billy further went on to say that Ariana's song Thank U Next deserves the awards more than anything in the world.
Ariana Grande was nominated for Thank U, Next. On Billie’s compliments, she sweetly reacted by nodding her head and mouthing ‘No’. She also blew air kisses and waved her hands up and down in denial of Billie's reaction on winning. Despite not winning in that category, she posted a short video clip of herself on Twitter thanking everyone for everything.
