Just before announcing the winner for Album of the Year, the 18-year-old singer could be seen at her seat mouthing, “Please don’t be me” on camera.
She reacted by throwing her arms into the air and shouting “No” as her name was called for the award, against artists including Ariana Grande, Lizzo, Post Malone & Swae Lee, Lil Nas X & Billy Ray Cyrus, Bon Iver, Khalid and H.E.R.
She and her brother, 22-year-old producer Finneas O’Connell, kept it short and sweet during their acceptance.
“Thank you,” said Eilish after her fifth win that night for her single “Bad Guy.”
It wasn’t her first time in the night rejecting acclaim. Earlier in the show, Eilish gave a shout-out to 26-year-old Grande during her acceptance for Album of the Year for 2019’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”
“Can I just say I think Ariana Grande deserves this?” said Eilish before making a quick exit.
“We stand up here confused and grateful,” her 22-year-old, Finneas O’Connell brother added.
The sibling duo swept last night’s ceremony’s at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, taking home five golden statuettes together for categories including Best New Artist, Song Of The Year (“Bad Guy”) as well as Best Pop Vocal Album earlier in the evening. Separately, O’Connell took home two other Grammys for his production work on “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” — an album the pair recorded together in their bedrooms at home.
Eilish’s team on the album also includes Rob Kinelski and O’Connell as engineers/mixers and John Greenham as mastering engineer.
