Billie Eilish Makes History And Then Some...

While Michael Jackson still holds the record for the most win by a single artist with eight Grammy awards, followed by six artists winning six Grammy Awards in a single night, winning five Grammy Awards in a single night is no easy feat either. Billie Eilish becomes the eighth woman, but the first in this decade, to not only win five Grammy awards, but it is also the ninth time for an artist to win three of the biggest Grammy Awards in a single night at the 62nd annual Grammy Award Sunday night. Eilish is the very first female artist, yet the second artist since Christopher Cross in 1981, to be not only nominated in all four General Fields category, but to win in all four of the General Fields category in one night. She also made history by being the youngest artist to nab the Album of the Year. Her brother, Finneas, equally won five Grammy Awards, including Producer of the Year (non-classical) and Best Engineered Album (non-classical). With Billie Eilish's multiple wins last night, some of us, like myself, wonder how many other solo artists either have multiple nominations and/ or wins at the Grammy Awards in a single night? Well, look no further!
