Popstar and committed animal activist Billie Eilish swept the board at the 2020 Grammys, winning five awards, including best new artist and song of the year. Eilish triumphed in all of the Grammys “big four” marquee categories – song of the year, record of the year, album of the year and best new artist.

The 18-year-old also won album of the year for her debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, which was recorded in her childhood home in LA. She replaces Taylor Swift as the youngest person ever to win the award.

She is also a vocal advocate of the vegan movement and is inspiring many to give cruelty-free.  The 18-year-old also won album of the year for her debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, which was recorded in her childhood home in LA.

In September, Eilish joined forces with vegan actor Woody Harrelson to urge people to switch up their diets to help save the planet. In a video called “Our House Is On Fire,” the pair spoke about the increasing urgency of the climate crisis. “Our earth is warming up and our oceans are rising,” Eilish said in the video.

“From California to the Amazon, our forests are burning,” Harrelson added. “We are in a climate emergency.” Eilish highlights that one million species are on their way to extinction, thanks to “mankind’s actions.”

The two asked people to take responsibility for the state of the planet and do their bit to help – namely by giving up meat, dairy, and plastic. They also urged politicians to push for legislation that better protects the Earth.

“I joke around a lot at these things, but I genuinely want to say I’m so grateful,” said the singer.

She is the first person to achieve the feat since Christopher Cross in 1981. Her elder brother, Finneas O’Connell, also picked up producer of the year for his work on Eilish’s album.

He said the record had been at home because “I’m the most creative where I’m most comfortable,” adding: “It’s a huge honour to be given a Grammy for making home-made cookies”.

Eilish appeared to be overwhelmed by the extent of her domination of the awards. Accepting the album of the year prize, she turned to fellow nominee Ariana Grande and said: “Can I just say that I think Ariana deserves this?” (Grande waved off the comments, ceding the prize back to the winner).
