Highland Park’s Billie Eilish Sets a New Record for Grammy Nominations

With six nominations, she’s the youngest person to ever be recognized in all the major categories
1052

As if we needed any more proof that 2019 was Billie Eilish’s year and the rest of us were just living in it, the teenage pop sensation just picked up six Grammy nominations. In doing so, she also happened to set a new record: Eilish is now the youngest person to ever be nominated in all four of the “major” categories–Record, Song, and Album of the Year, and Best New Artist–in a single year.

At 17, she’s not the youngest Grammy nominee overall. As the Los Angeles Times points out, both Luis Miguel and LeAnn Rimes won Grammy awards at the age of 14. The unusual bit here is being nominated across all the biggies at such a tender age.

With her six nominations, Eilish ties with Lil Nas X for number of nods this year, with the two of them trailing only Lizzo, 2019’s most-nominated artist, who received eight nominations.

The Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center on January 26, 2020. A full list of nominations in top categories is below. Check out more details at grammy.com.
