Billie Eilish is not happy with her Oscars 2020 performance from Sunday, calling it “trash” in a recent interview.
The 18-year-old performed a cover of The Beatles’ Yesterday during the ceremony’s tribute to fallen members of the film industry. To celebrate the release of her Easter egg-filled new song ‘No Time to Die’ for the upcoming James Bond movie of the same name, the singer opened up to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe about her experience at the Academy Awards.
She revealed, “I was sick for all of the Oscars, I bombed that performance. That was trash.”
On top of feeling under the weather, Billie felt out of place amongst the audience of movie stars. The 18-year-old added, “I’m not used to that. At least the Grammys wasn’t as scary because it was, like, artists. And it felt like my people, it felt like, ‘Oh, look, a bunch of artists!’ And I knew a lot of them already and I’d met them, and they knew of me.”
Despite feeling sick and out of her element, many fans flocked to social media during her In Memoriam performance to applaud her “beautiful,” “chilling” and “powerful” rendition of the classic Beatles song.
Billie might not be proud of her Oscars showcase, but she is about her new Bond song, which she co-wrote with her brother Finneas, making her the youngest person to write and sing a theme song for the franchise.
