As Ellen DeGeneres has her finger on the pulse of everything that’s hot, viral, and buzzing, it was only a matter of time before 16-year-old pop prodigy Billie Eilish booked some airtime on the daytime TV show. Even without a debut album under her belt, the rising musician has already played multiple big-name festivals and earned the cosigns of Dave Grohl (and his daughter), Khalid, and Florence and the Machine.
For her Ellen debut on Wednesday, Eilish lit up the room with a swaggering performance of her hit “you should see me in a crown”. The stage was set up so that Eilish sang from her very own throne, which was encased within a glass box guarded by spiders. It also takes quite a bit of guts to wear your name from head to toe. Suffice it say the audience (or at least home viewers) was left nearly speechless. Catch the replay below.
