(L-R) Billie Eilish and FINNEAS accept the Record of the Year award for 'Everything I Wanted' onstage during the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards at Los Angeles Convention Center on March 14, 2021 in Los Angeles.

For the second straight year, Billie Eilish has won the Grammy for record of the year: “Everything I Wanted” triumphed in the final award presented at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night (March 14), with Eilish taking home the prize one year after doing so for “Bad Guy.”

Standing next to her brother and main collaborator Finneas O'Connell, Eilish spent the majority of her acceptance speech appearing stunned at the back-to-back win, and also shouting out best new artist recipient Megan Thee Stallion, whose “Savage” was nominated for record of the year.

“You deserve this. You had a year that I think was un-toppable. ... You are a queen,” Eilish told the Houston rapper from the Grammys stage.

“Everything I Wanted,” a top 10 hit on the Hot 100 chart for Eilish, emerged victorious in the record of the year category against Beyoncé’s “Black Parade,” Black Pumas’ “Colors,” DaBaby and Roddy Ricch’s “Rockstar,” Doja Cat’s “Say So,” Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now,” Post Malone’s “Circles” and Megan Thee Stallion & Beyoncé’s “Savage.”

Eilish also won the Grammy for best song written for visual media this year, with her Bond theme song “No Time To Die.”

At last year’s Grammys, Eilish became just the second artist in Grammy history to sweep the Big Four categories: album of the year, record of the year, song of the year and best new artist. At the age of 19, Eilish now owns seven Grammys.
