Billie Eilish, Lizzo prevail at Grammy Awards

Billie Eilish took home five wins, including the top four categories at the Grammy Awards Sunday, Jan. 26 winning record, album and song of the year. The musician also won the best new artist award.

Lizzo and Gary Clark Jr. also succeeded at the Grammy’s taking home three awards each.

Sunday night’s Grammy Awards began with a tribute to Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Maria Onore Bryant, and the seven other victims of the California helicopter crash that occurred earlier that morning.

Stars and hosts attending the award ceremony repeatedly recognized the Staples Center, where the 2020 Grammy’s were held, as the “house of Kobe.”

Lizzo, who won three awards and was nominated for Best New Artist, dedicated her performance to the late NBA star.

“This is for Kobe,” Lizzo shouted. “I’m crying, because I love you.”

Lizzo won for Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Gary Clark Jr. won for Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song and Best Contemporary Blues Album.
