Check out 2020 Grammy Award Winners : The Full List

It looked like a showdown between three of the past year’s most popular breakout artists, with Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, and Lizzo facing off in the top Grammy categories, including best new artist. But, it turns out, it was a coronation for Eilish, who won the four top prizes—best new artist plus record, song, and album of the year— in addition to Grammys in pop categories, too. She made history in 2018 with a series of chart records; the Grammys, it seemed, wanted in on that history.

Predicting the Grammy winners for 2020 seemed particularly difficult this year, given the swirling controversy surrounding the Recording Academy—which hands out the awards—and allegations made by former president Deborah Dugan that, among other things, the process of voting for the awards was badly flawed. For a time it seemed impossible the Grammy Awards could even happen— and that was even before news of Kobe Bryant’s death in a helicopter crash broke hours before the ceremony, leading to a somber opening to music’s biggest night.

For more Grammys coverage, get the story behind Billy Porter’s show-stopping motorized hat, read about how the Grammys paid tribute to Bryant throughout the night, and see all the looks from the red carpet.
