Watch Billie Eilish give a gravity-defying performance for SNL debut

Things got a bit trippy for the show’s 45th season premiere

Billie Eilish just made her SNL debut, and boy, was it one to remember.

Last night during the famed series’ 45th season premier, Eilish brought her distinct brand of style to the SNL stage.

Introduced by host Woody Harrelson as “the incomparable Billie Eilish”, the singer kicked things off with a mind-bending performance of her hit track ‘Bad Guy’.

Standing in a small box designed to resemble the Grand Central Station terminal in New York, Eilish appeared in one of her signature oversized outfits. While traversing the small set, things soon took a turn – literally – when the box began rotating with her movements.

It wasn’t long before Eilish was traversing the walls and dancing on the ceiling, and coupled with a stellar light show, the performance felt truly out of this world. The act will go down in SNL’s history as one of the most memorable.

During the show’s second-half, Eilish returned to perform her song ‘i love you’.

Ditching the high-end trappings seen in her first performance, Eilish opted for a more sombre tone this time around.

Joined by brother Finneas O’Connell on guitar, Eilish gave a stripped-back performance that showcased her talents as a serious singer.

Earlier this week, Billie announced an arena world tour, Where Do We Go?.

Kicking off in July 2020, the tour will see Billie head to the UK for a number of shows.

This will include two dates at Manchester Arena (July 21 and 22), and one at Birmingham Arena (July 24). The UK portion of her tour will round up with two shows at the O2 in London on July 26 and 27.

Tickets go on sale Friday October 4 at 9am.
