What happens on Brexit Day and what comes next?
This Friday, 31 January, marks the start of a race to get a trade deal done by the end of the yearThere will be little official pageantry to mark Britain’s departure from the European Union at 11pm on Friday. A clock counting down the last hour will be projected on to No 10 Downing Street, and Nigel Farage will host a celebration in Parliament Square where flagpoles will fly union jacks.But there will be nothing like the torchlight procession that marked the august occasion on 1 January 1973 when the prime minister Edward Heath was joined in Brussels by his predecessors Harold Macmillan, Alec Douglas-Home and a chorus of leaders from across the political divide to witness the accession of the UK into the European Economic Community.

Billie Eilish makes history at her first Grammys, sweeping the top categories
Emma McIntyre/Getty Images for The Recording Academy Eilish is youngest artist and the first woman to win all four of the awards’ major trophies: Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year. The Grammy Awards hand out trophies in more than 80 categories, honoring artists across all genres. But the four biggest categories — Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist — all went to just one artist this year: Billie Eilish. Eilish took the stage wearing her trademark oversized, androgynous couture and neon green roots to collect all six of the awards that she and her brother/producer/co-writer, Finneas O’Connell, were nominated for. (She also won Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.) It was a historic sweep, and not just because Eilish is a total newcomer on the pop music scene. In picking up the coveted Album of the Year trophy, the 18-year-old became the youngest artist ever to win that category. Eilish was also the first woman to win all four of the Grammys’ big-deal trophies. And yes, it really took until this, the 62nd annual edition of this awards show, for that to happen. Welcome to the 21st century, Grammys. Eilish is a memorable and welcome winner, though: Her eclectic and often ingenious debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? heralded the teen as a unique, anxious, delicate voice of the post-millennial generation, one who speaks across the age gap. And almost exactly one year after the album’s release, the Grammys have affirmed her as the queen of pop, beating out tough competition like Lizzo, Lil Nas X, and Ariana Grande for the crown. The nominees for Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist are listed below, with the winner (a.k.a. Billie Eilish) in bold. Visit the Grammys’ website for the full list of 2020 Grammys winners.
