After the dust settled on a nearly 4-hour long marathon filled with performances, awards and a solemn tribute, 18-year old Billie Eilish walked away with biggest honors of the night – a clean sweep not seen since 1981. 

Eilish bagged five Grammys including album of the year, the song of the year, the record of the year and pop vocal album. She was also the youngest person to do so.  

The 2020 Grammys opened with a tribute to basketball player Kobe Bryant, who tragically passed away hours before the awards. The ceremony took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, home to the LA Lakers, Bryant’s team. Two-time Grammy host Alicia Keys and the musical group Boyz II Men led the tributes with an acapella version of “So Hard To Say Goodbye” before Keys dedicated the show to Bryant’s memory. 

This year’s broadcast also saw a six percent rating dip compared to last year’s ceremony and a fifty-three percent drop compared to 2012. 

The other big winners of the night were Tyler the Creator who won Best Rap Album for IGOR,  Elvis Costello & The Imposters took the Traditional Pop Vocal Album crown, Anderson .Paak nabbed one Best R&B Album, Lizzo picked one up for Urban Contemporary Album, Cage The Elephant won Best Rock Album, Chemical Brothers took the Best Dance/Electronic Album category and Tool won the Grammy for Best Metal Performance.
