The 18-year-old singer became the youngest solo performer to ever win the album of the year trophy for debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, breaking Taylor Swift's record, who won the award at age of 20 for Fearless.

She also became the first artiste in 39 years to take home the four major awards. Soft rock staple Christopher Cross was the last artiste to do so, in 1981.

The 92nd Academy Awards will also see Cynthia Erivo, Elton John, Idina Menzel, Chrissy Metz and Randy Newman perform their Oscar-nominated songs.

Popular American musician Questlove will be making an appearance at the ceremony, which will be held on 9 February.

Irish composer Eimear Noone would become the first-ever female conductor during an Oscars guest-segment.
