It was a night of firsts at the 92nd annual Academy Awards. Parasite became the first non-English-language film to win Best Picture, Laura Dern won her first award and Billie Eilish attended the Oscars for the first time. You might be wondering why the singer was in attendance, or, more accurately, what her ties to the film industry are. She’s set to perform the theme song for the upcoming James Bond movie, No Time To Die, but last night she performed during the “In Memoriam” section of the awards ceremony. However the spotlight was on the Grammy-winner beyond her short performance. Here are the highlights of the 18-year-old’s night.
A strong red carpet entrance
She showed up to the event in an incredible custom Chanel tracksuit with lace gloves and her signature black and green hair. She made our best dressed list, duh.
When Billie Met Jerry
Jerry Harris from Cheer was Ellen’s red carpet correspondent and his moment with Eilish is adorable. He let her try on his Navarro ring!
The “childhood movie” favourites that are making everyone feel old
Billy Porter asked Eilish and her brother, Finneas what their favourite movies growing up were. Eilish responded The Babadook (2014) and We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011) while Finneas answered The Social Network (2010) and Moneyball (2011). “Oh, and these are films from your youth?” Porter jokingly reacted.

The most meme-able reactions
Billie Eilish hasn’t quite mastered the art of the award-show poker face yet, which is good news for those who have an affinity for reaction memes. She appeared vaguely confused when Eminem performed his 2002 track “Lose Yourself.” Honestly same, since Eminem had no involvement with any films last year.
She also seemed weirded out by Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig’s hilarious on-stage banter. Someone show this girl Bridesmaids!
A somber “In Memoriam” performance
Finally, Eilish took the stage with Finneas to perform the Beatles’ classic song, “Yesterday.” It was a beautifully understated cover, with just Finneas on the piano and Eilish’s vocals on display during the most somber part of the night.
