Billie said she felt embarrassed by the win as she thinks Megan deserved it more. “You deserved this. You had a year that I think is untoppable. You are a queen. I want to cry thinking about how much I love you,” she said while Megan humbly nodded her head. Watch the footage of her speech below.
Eilish also won the Grammy for best song written for visual media this year, with her Bond theme song ‘No Time To Die’.
