Last night at the Grammys, Billie Eilish accepted the Record of the Year award for the second year in a row for her song ‘Everything I Wanted’.
After getting on stage, the 19-year-old said it was “embarrassing” to win an award she believed should have gone to Megan Thee Stallion.
“This is really embarrassing for me,” she said when she made it onto the stage.
“Megan, girl… I was going to write a speech about how you deserve this,” she continued. “But then I was like, ‘There’s no way they’re gonna choose me.’ I was like, ‘It’s hers.’
“You deserve this,” she said, addressing Megan. “You had a year that I think is untoppable. You are a queen. I want to cry thinking about how much I love you.”
Although Megan missed out on Record of the Year, she did take home the award for Best New Artist, as well as Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her ‘Savage’ remix featuring Beyoncé.

Elsewhere in Grammy news, Beyoncé earned her 28th award after picking up Best R&B Performance for ‘Black Parade’, Best Music Video for ‘Brown Skin Girl’ as well as Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for ‘Savage’, with Megan Thee Stallion. Beyoncé was also the most-nominated artist of the night, with nine nominations.
Her 9-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, became the second-youngest artist to win a Grammy for her collaboration with her mum on ‘Brown Skin Girl’.
Beyoncé is tied with producer and multi-instrumentalist Quincy Jones for the second most Grammy wins.
Meanwhile, Kanye West tied with JAY-Z for the most GRAMMY wins among hip-hop artists at 22 apiece.
