The edgy, avant-pop album that siblings Billie Eilish and Finneas created in Finneas’s small bedroom studio in Los Angeles made a big splash at the 2020 Grammy Awards in L.A. on Jan. 26, winning 10 honors for the musical family.

When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? — created in the musicians’ family home — helped Eilish win the top four honors — album, song and record of the year, plus best new artist. The 18-year-old is the youngest artist to achieve the feat and the first to do so since Christopher Cross in 1981.

Eilish and brother Finneas — who co-wrote, produced and engineered her album — both walked away with five awards.

“We didn’t write a speech for this because we didn’t make this album to win a Grammy. We didn’t think it would win anything ever. We wrote an album about depression and suicidal thoughts and climate change and being the bad guy — whatever that means — and we stand up here confused and grateful,” Finneas said onstage.

Together, they also won best pop vocal album, while Finneas’s individual honors included producer of the year (non-classical) and best engineered album (non-classical).

“This is my first Grammys. I never thought this would happen in my whole life,” Eilish said. “I genuinely wanna say I am so grateful and I only wanna say that I am so grateful.”

“This is to all the kids who are making music in the bedroom today — you’re going to get one of these,” Finneas added. (AP)
