Billie Eilish and Miley Cyrus Share Behind-the-Scenes Laughs at the 2024 Grammys
At the 2024 Grammys, it wasn’t just about the glitz and glamour on stage; there were also some candid moments backstage, particularly between Billie Eilish and Miley Cyrus. The two talented artists found common ground in a humorous exchange that revealed the lighter side of the music industry.
While Cyrus celebrated her first Grammy wins for “Flowers” in the Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance categories, Eilish, along with her brother Finneas, secured two more golden gramophones for their contribution to Greta Gerwig’s summer hit, “Barbie.”
Caught in a candid moment backstage, Eilish spilled the beans on their amusing conversation. The focus? The nerves that come with delivering acceptance speeches. Eilish shared, “Not to blow up her spot, but she was asking me if I also feel when I get up on stage that I say the dumbest s— I could possibly say. I was like, ‘Absolutely, 100 percent.’ She was like, ‘Why was I saying all that?’ Sorry, Miley, but I feel the same. I always get up there and I just poop out of my mouth.”
Cyrus, who was presented with her first golden gramophone by none other than Mariah Carey for Best Pop Solo Performance, couldn’t help but express her excitement. Onstage, she playfully remarked, “This MC is going to stand by this MC because this is just too iconic. I was stuck in the rain in traffic, and I thought I was going to miss this moment, and I could have missed this award, that’s fine, but not Mariah Carey.”
Later, as Cyrus accepted her second Grammy in the Record of the Year category, she blended gratitude with humor, thanking her producers and loved ones before cheekily adding, “I don’t think I forgot anyone, but I might’ve forgotten underwear. Bye!”
While Cyrus’ “Endless Summer Vacation” was also in the running for Album of the Year (won by Taylor Swift for “Midnights”), the night saw other notable victories, with Phoebe Bridgers leading the pack with four trophies, followed closely by SZA, Killer Mike, and Victoria Monét, each securing three wins. The Grammys, beyond the spotlight, revealed the camaraderie and laughter shared among the music industry’s brightest stars.
