Lumikha ng history ang 18-year old singer na si Billie Eilish sa katatapos na 62nd Grammy Awards.
Si Eilish ang youngest solo performer to ever win Album of the Year for When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go? Naagaw na niya ang record na ito mula kay Taylor Swift who won the same award at the age of 20 for her album Fearless in 2009.
Tinalo nga ni Eilish ang mga kalaban niya na sina Bon Iver (I, I), Lana Del Rey (Norman F***ing Rockwell), Ariana Grande (Thank U, Next), H.E.R. (I Used to Know Her), Lil Nas X (7), Lizzo (Cuz I Love You) and Vampire Weekend (Father of the Bride).
Shocked si Eilish nang tanggapin niya ang Album of the Year award at nasabi pa niya: "Can I just say that I think Ariana deserves this?"
Bukod sa Album of the Year, nauwi rin ni Eilish ang apat pang biggest awards ng Grammy: Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year (“Bad Guy”), and Best Pop Vocal Album.
Eilish also became the first woman and second person ever to win record of the year, album of the year, song of the year and best new artist in the same year.
Ang unang music artist na makagawa nito ay si Christopher Cross in 1981.
Born Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell on December 18, 2001 in Highland Park, Los Angeles, Eilish gained media attention in 2016 when she uploaded the song "Ocean Eyes" on SoundCloud. Eilish's debut EP, Don't Smile at Me (2017), reached the top 15 in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.
Ang debut studio album niya na When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (2019), debuted the Billboard 200 and became the best-performing album of 2019 in the U.S, pati na rin sa United Kingdom. The album contains six Billboard Hot 100 top 40 singles: "When the Party's Over," "Bury a Friend," "Wish You Were Gay," "Xanny," "Everything I Wanted," and "Bad Guy”.
Umani si Eilish ng 13 platinum and four gold singles in the US as of January 2020. Bukod sa kanyang five Grammy Awards, nakatanggap din siya ng two American Music Awards, two Guinness World Records, and three MTV Video Music Awards.
Sa isang interview, inamin ni Eilish na meron siyang Tourette syndrome and synesthesia, and has experienced depression.
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorder and Stroke: "Tourette syndrome (TS) is a neurological disorder characterized by repetitive, stereotyped, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics. TS occurs in people from all ethnic groups; males are affected about three to four times more often than females. It is estimated that 200,000 Americans have the most severe form of TS, and as many as one in 100 exhibit milder and less complex symptoms such as chronic motor or vocal tics."
Ang synesthesia naman ayon sa Wikipedia ay "perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. In one common form of synesthesia, known as grapheme–color synesthesia or color–graphemic synesthesia, letters or numbers are perceived as inherently colored.”
Eilish was raised vegetarian and regularly advocates for veganism on social media. In an interview with The Guardian in March 2019, Eilish stated she has never used drugs or smoked.
