The Bad Guy hitmaker picked up the ceremony’s final award – her second of the day – and confessed she hadn’t written an acceptance speech, because she was sure the Savage hitmaker would win.
“Megan, I was gonna write a speech about how you deserve this, but then I was like, ‘There’s no way they’re gonna choose me!'” Billie said.
“I was like, ‘It’s hers’. You deserve this. You had a year that I think is un-top-able,” she went on.
Continuing to gush about her favourite rapper, gracious Eilish added: “You are a queen. I wanna cry thinking about how much I love you. You are so beautiful, you’re so talented. You deserve everything in the world. I think about you constantly. I root for you always… Genuinely, this goes to her.”
She then asked her fellow Record of the Year nominees, seated in a tent outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles to “cheer for Megan Thee Stallion”.
Megan didn’t go home empty-handed – she picked up three awards, including Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her Savage collaboration with Beyonce. She also took part in one of the ceremony’s show-stopping sets as she teamed up with Cardi B to perform a super-sexy version of their hit WAP.
