  1. Billie Eilish Makes History at the Grammys

    The 18-year-old singer-songwriter — the youngest person ever nominated for the four top awards at once — swept all of them last night, taking record, song, and album of the year, as well as best new artist. She was also the first woman to win all four at once. Meanwhile, eight-time nominee Lizzo walked away with three Grammys, and Lil Nas X, who was nominated in six categories, took home two trophies.

    Who else emerged victorious? Former first lady Michelle Obama won for best spoken word album, the same award her husband won in 2006 and 2008, for the audiobook of her memoir Becoming.
