The 29-year-old Texan rocker won big for his self-titled LP ' which controversially beat Pink Floyd's iconic "The Wall" ' and for its standout song "Sailing." It was the peak of his critical and commercial success.Eilish, who had already won earlier in the evening for best pop vocal album, seemed geniunely surprised ' and even a little irritated ' when she accepted her four major awards.Fans noticed that she was mouthing, "Please don't be me," when album of the year was about to be announced. She also appeared to yell "no" when she heard her name.'Please don't be me. Please.' Billie Eilish being genuinely disgusted by her own success is one of the most hilarious things I've ever seen at a major awards show. #Grammys pic.twitter.com/A7iSCVta2N' Joey Nolfi (@joeynolfi) January 27, 2020The genre-bending artist even said that she wanted Ariana Grande to win instead."Can I just say that I think Ariana deserves this'" she said during her acceptance speech. She went on to say something (presumably flattering) about Grande's album "Thank U, Next," but it was censored by the telecast."I'm not gonna waste your time. I'm really not. I love you. Thank you for this," she quickly concluded.Billie Eilish says she thinks Ariana deserves the album of the year award and Ariana's reaction is amazing #GRAMMYs pic.twitter.com/Zv320KmwKJ' Chicks in the Office (@ChicksInTheOff) January 27, 2020When Eilish and her brother returned to the stage to accept record of the year, they kept their speech remarkably succinct: "Thank you," they said in unison before exiting the stage."Thank you."
