Young and talented

She's only 18 and she won all the main categories during The Grammy Awards last weekend with an album that was produced together with her brother at home!

It sounds pretty crazy when you put it all in a sentence but we have to say, Billie Eilish is quite awesome lah

On top of it all, she also became the youngest person ever to win Album of the Year for her album 'When We Sleep, Where Do We Go?'

Her other wins were for Record of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album and Song of the Year for 'Bad Guy'.

The artist is also only the second person in the history of the awards to win four major categories in the same year. The last time that happened was in 1981. 

Despite bagging all the big awards, the talented teen seemed pretty humble about her win, with someone even catching her mouthing "Please don't be me. Please" followed by a "No" when her name was announced for one of the awards.

Later, during her speech, she said that Arianna Grande, who was also nominated for Album of the Year, deserved to have won. 

"'Thank U, Next' got me through some s***, and I think it deserves this more than anything in the world. I love you, thank you so much," she said. 

Eilish produced most, if not all, of her music at home with her brother Finneas O’Connel. 

According to Engadget, practically all the songs in the album were created in a bedroom studio in the duo's parents' home, using not-so-expensive gadgets. 

 O'Connel was quoted as saying that he prefered to make music at their home studio because there's sunlight and they don't have to pay a lot of money to make 'em. 

He also won Producer of the Year and Best Engineered Album (non-classical) at the Grammys. 

Lizzo, who was nominated for eight categories, won the Best Solo Pop Performance for 'Truth Hurts', as well as Best Traditional R&B Performance for 'Jerome' and Best Urban Contemporary Album for 'Cuz I Love You (Deluxe)', both of which were not televised. 

Best Country Duo/Group Performance was won by Dan + Shay for 'Speechess', Best Comedy Album went to Dave Chappelle for 'Sticks & Stones', Best Rap Album went to Tyler, the Creator for 'IGOR', Best Rap/Sung Collaboration went to DJ Khaled featuring Nipsey Hussle and John Legend for 'Higher', Best Pop Duo/Group Performance was won by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus for 'Old Town Road'.
