Billie Eilish, an 18-year-old singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, swept the top four prizes at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, becoming the first artist to do so in 39 years, during a ceremony overshadowed by a Recording Academy scandal and the sudden death of basketball star Kobe Bryant.

A black-and-green clad Eilish captured five prizes in total, including record, song and album of the year, as well as best new artist. The youngest artist to win album of the year in Grammy history, Eilish accepted the awards with her brother, Finneas O’Connell, who also won a pair of statuettes as a producer and for engineering her music.
