The 62nd Grammys took place last week to recognize artists, singers, and musicians from around the world. If you missed the show, here are some highlights:

Billie Eilish had an amazing night.

She won a total of five Grammys, four of which are known as the Big Four: Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, and Record of the Year. She is the first woman and only the second person ever to sweep the awards. The first time all four awards were won by a single artist was in 1981 by Christopher Cross.
