Billie Eilish

American singer Billie Eilish has topped the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

The 18-year-old was crowned a four-time winner at this year’s awards, taking home the awards for Female Artist of the Year, Album of the Year for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and Song of the Year for Bad Guy.

Back in March, the in-person prize giving was delayed and then cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Organizers announced the honourees over iHeartRadio stations over the Labor Day holiday in America.

Eilish also dominated the Alternative Rock categories and her brother and frequent collaborator, Finneas, was named Producer of the Year.

Lizzo won Song of the Year for her song Truth Hurts and Best New Pop Artist.

Rapper Post Malone was named Male Artist of the Year, Most Thumbed Up Artist of the Year and Most Thumbed Up Song of the Year for Sunflower with Swae Lee and the Jonas Brothers earned Best Duo/Group of the year.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, who are dating, won Best Collaboration.

Other artists who received top honours include Drake, DaBaby, BTS, Elton John and Marshmello.
