Billie Eilish took home the top award of the night at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards, while Beyonce and Taylor Swift broke records. Sunday night’s ceremony saw Eilish’s “Everything I Wanted” win Record of the Year, considered the top award at the Recording Academy Awards, marking her seventh Grammy win total. Eilish is a two-time Record of the Year winner, taking back-to-back wins with “Everything I Wanted” and last year’s “Bad Guy.” She won two awards at the Grammys, her other win being for “No Time to Die” which won the Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift won Album of the Year for Folklore, one of two albums she recorded and released during the COVID-19 pandemic (along with December’s Evermore, which was not eligible as the eligibility years run from September to August). The win gives Swift the the most Album of the Year wins for a woman with three. Beyonce also set a record, as her wins for “Black Parade” (Best R&B Performance), “Savage” with Megan Thee Stallion (Best Rap Performance & Best Rap Song), and “Brown Skin Girl” with Saint Jhn & Wizkid featuring her daughter Blue Ivy (Best Music Video) made her the most-awarded woman in Grammys history, topping Alison Krauss.
