Billie Eilish (USA, b. Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell, 18 December 2001) was 18 years 39 days old when she made a clean sweep of the Grammy Awards’ so-called “big four” categories – Album of the Year (When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?), Song of the Year, Record of the Year (both for “Bad Guy”) and Best New Artist – at the 62nd annual prize-giving ceremony, staged at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, USA, on 26 January 2020. She followed in the footsteps of Christopher Cross (1981) and Adele (2012) as the only musicians to have completed the set in the history of the Grammys.

Cross (USA, b. 3 May 1951) was 29 years 298 days old when he became the first musician to win all four categories in one night (Eilish was the second), during the 23rd edition of the Grammys on 25 February 1981. Adele (UK, b. 5 May 1988), the first female to be awarded trophies in each of the “big four” categories (Eilish was the second), scooped Best New Artist in 2009 and added Album of the Year (21), Song of the Year and Record of the Year (both for “Rolling in the Deep”) in 2012. She was 23 years 283 days old when the 54th Annual Grammy Awards came to the Staples Center on 12 February 2012.

Eilish, who was just 17 years 337 days old when the nominations for the 62nd Grammys were announced on 20 November 2019, also won Best Pop Vocal Album for When We All Fall Asleep… in 2020, but missed out on her sixth nomination, for “Bad Guy”, in the Best Pop Solo Performance category. That award went to Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts”.
