Billie Eilish cleaned up at the Grammys on Sunday, winning five awards, as the music world mourned the loss of LA’s hometown basketball hero Kobe Bryant with a series of emotional tributes.
18-year-old Eilish swept the “big four” prizes of Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist – in an industry acknowledgement of her mould-breaking role.
“Tonight is for Kobe,” shouted the 31-year-old twerking flautist, hours after his death in a helicopter crash was confirmed. His 13-year-old daughter and seven others also died in the incident.
Lizzo then launched into a medley performance of her top hits that set the tone for the night.
