Billie Eilish at the Grammys – level 2

03-02-2020 15:00

Billie Eilish won four top Grammy awards on Saturday night. She was very surprised that she won because she never expected it.

She won for the best album of the year, which she recorded at home with her older brother. Her brother said that he never thought that they could win anything. He said that he was confused and grateful.

Eilish is 18 years old and she is the youngest person to win all four top awards in one year.

She is also the first woman in history to do this. The only artist who won all four awards in the past was Christopher Cross in 1981.

Difficult words: award (a prize), confused (unable to understand something), grateful (feeling very good and thankful after a person gets something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
