Billie Eilish made Grammy history on Sunday night when she became only the second artist to ever win all four major categories.

Eilish, 18, was named Best New Artist and also won Record of the Year and Song of the Year for "Bad Guy" and Album of the Year for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Eilish was nominated in seven categories, and won six awards. When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? was produced and co-written by Eilish's brother, Finneas O'Connell.

In 1981, Christopher Cross was the first person to win the Grammys for album, song, record, and best new artist in one year, the Los Angeles Times reports.
