Eilish, 18, whose full name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell, earned six nominations this year, second only to Lizzo’s eight nods. Eilish beat out Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Tanya Tucker, Lana Del Rey, Lewis Capaldi and Lizzo to win the prize, becoming one of the youngest Grammy winners. The 62nd Grammy Awards nominees were selected from more than 20,000 submissions across 84 categories and the eligibility window is for projects released between Oct. 1, 2018 and Aug. 31, 2019. As the only peer-selected music award, the Grammy Awards are voted on by the Recording Academy’s membership body of music makers, who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, producers, mixers and engineers.
