For the final award of the Grammys, Record of the Year, Billie Eilish won in a field filled with heavyweight contenders: “Black Parade,” Beyoncé, “Colors,” Black Pumas, “Rockstar,” DaBaby Featuring Roddy Ricch, “Say So,” Doja Cat, “Don’t Start Now,”Dua Lipa, “Circles,” Post Malone, and “Savage,” Megan Thee Stallion Featuring Beyoncé.
However, Eilish didn’t seem to think that she deserved that particular award: during her speech she said it should have gone to Megan Thee Stallion..
19-year-old Eilish said, “You deserve this. You had… a year that I think is un-toppable. You are a queen. I wanna cry thinking about how much I love you. You are so beautiful, you are so talented, you deserve everything in the world. I think about you constantly I root for you always. You deserve it, honestly — genuinely this goes to her.”
She had the audience cheer for Meghan Thee Stallion, who seemed to be emotional and grateful for Billie’s acknowledgement in her sweet praises.
This marks Eilish’s seventh career Grammy win.
