Billie Eilish performed her 2019 single ‘everything i wanted’ at the 2021 Grammy Awards last night. She was accompanied by her brother FINNEAS and opened the performance standing atop a car. Watch it below.
For the second year in a row, Eilish took home the Record of the Year award, becoming only the second artist to ever achieve such a feat. ‘everything i wanted’ beat out songs by Doja Cat (‘Say So’), Dua Lipa (‘Don’t Start Now’), Post Malone (‘Circles’), DaBaby and Roddy Ricch (‘ROCKSTAR’), Black Pumas (‘Colors’), Beyoncé (‘Black Parade’), and Megan Thee Stallion’s Beyoncé-featuring ‘Savage’ remix.
In her acceptance speech, Eilish said Megan Thee Stallion should have won the award. “This is really embarrassing for me,” she said. “Megan, girl… I was gonna write a speech about how you deserve this, but then I was like, ‘There’s no way they’re going to choose me.’ I was like, ‘It’s hers.’ You deserve this. You had a year that I think is untoppable. You are a queen — I want to cry thinking about how much I love you… You deserve everything in the world. I think about you constantly… You deserve it.”
‘everything i wanted’ was also nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Eilish’s titular theme song for the upcoming James Bond film No Time to Die won Best Song Written for Visual Media. Check out the full list of winners here.
