Billie Eilish might've gotten her start as a self-published teenager singing songs on SoundCloud, but now she is a full-blown mega-star, and the awards she took home on Sunday night at the Grammys prove it.

CNN reports that the 18-year-old “Bad Guy” singer made history at the prestigious ceremony when she won Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album.

Eilish is the first woman (and second person ever) to win Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist all in the same year, only following Christopher Cross in 1981. The only other person to get close was Adele, who won all four of the categories over the span of three years.

The Los Angeles-native is also the youngest solo performer ever to win Album of the Year, breaking Taylor Swift’s record for the album Fearless that she won when she was 20. As if that weren’t impressive enough, she was up against some heavy-hitters in the category. She beat out Bon Iver for I, I, Lana Del Rey for Norman F***ing Rockwell, Ariana Grande for Thank U, Next, H.E.R. for I Used to Know Her, Lil Nas X for 7, Lizzo for Cuz I Love You, and Vampire Weekend for Father of the Bride.

In her sweet and humble fashion, Eilish exuded nothing but shock and awe at the achievement, admitting during her speech, “Can I just say that I think Ariana deserves this?”

Clearly, the Recording Academy disagrees with Eilish. Congratulations Billie!
