Only female artists have held the youngest-winner-ever distinction since 1964.
Nearly a decade ago, on Jan. 31, 2010, Taylor Swift became the youngest solo artist in Grammy history to win for album of the year. She was just 20 when Fearless walked off with the top prize. Swift has held that distinction ever since, but she may lose it on Jan. 26 if Billie Eilish's critically-hailed debut album, When We All Fall Asleep Where Do Go?, takes the award. Eilish will be 18 on Grammy night.
Henry Mancini was 35 on May 4, 1959, when he became the first album of the year winner for The Music from Peter Gunn, which featured music from a TV series about a suave private eye. Since then, the title of youngest album of the year winner ever has changed hands five times.
Bob Newhart was 31 on April 12, 1961, when his comedy album The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart took the award. Newhart had a second No. 1 album, but achieved far greater fame thanks to starring roles in a number of TV series.
