Billie Eilish Grammy Records: She Could Put Another One With ‘TV’

Billie Eilish accomplished a lot at his young age in terms of award records and milestones. Now she comes after another. If she’s nominated for record of the year at the upcoming Grammys for “TV,” she’ll become just the second artist — and first woman — to receive ROTY nominations for four consecutive years.

Currently, four artists have been nominated for three consecutive years. Eilish did it with “Bad Guy” (2020), “Everything I Wanted” (2021) and “Happier Than Ever” (2022), winning for the first two. before her, Roberta Flack did a set of three with “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” (1973), “Killing Me Softly with His Song” (1974), and “Feel Like Makin’ Love” (1975); she also won the first two of her three bids. So Steve Winwood earned names for “Higher Love” (1987), “Back in the High Life Again” (1988), and “Roll with It” (1989); he won on his first name. And Post Malone did so with “Rockstar” (2019), “Sunflower” (2020), and “Circles” (2021); he is the only artist to have won none of his three consecutive names.

But Frank Sinatra is the only one with four consecutive ROTY offerings: ‘Witchcraft’ (1959), ‘High Hopes’ (1959 second ceremony), ‘Nice ‘n’ Easy’ (1961) and ‘The Second Time Around’ (1962). He didn’t win for any of these, but he claimed ROTY a few years later for “Strangers in the Night” (1967). So if Eilish is nominated for the next Grammys for “TV,” she’ll match Sinatra.

Eilish is helped by the fact that she competed in an expanded field. The Sinatra names came up when there were only five slots for ROTY. When Eilish won her first two bids, there were eight spots, and her third name year had 10 spots available. There will again be 10 nominations for the 2023 awards, so an artist as beloved by voters as Eilish has been should always be seen as a strong threat for a nomination.

According to the combined predictions of Gold Derby users at the time of this writing, Eilish sits just outside the 12th place nomination position. Why not higher? Well, “TV” didn’t have the cultural or commercial impact of its previously nominated singles. “Bad Guy” was a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100. “Everything I Wanted” made the top 10. “Happier Than Ever” peaked at number 11. But “TV” debuted on the chart and peaked at number 52. And with three nominations and two wins already under her belt, there may not be a sense of urgency in nominating her again so soon.

Still, given her high profile at these prices, she just might pull a Sinatra. Check out the current odds for the race here. And make or update your predictions here.
