Billie Eilish on SNL: Barbie Melody Meets Christmas Classic

Billie Eilish returned to “Saturday Night Live” last night, marking her third appearance on the iconic stage. This time around, she treated the audience to a special performance of her hit track “What Was I Made For?” from the Barbie soundtrack. Her brother, Finneas, accompanied her on the piano. Barbie film director Greta Gerwig and SNL’s very own Kate McKinnon introduced the pop star. Watch the performances below.

Eilish’s Electrifying Performances

Besides her Barbie hit, Billie Eilish also delivered a heartwarming rendition of the Judy Garland classic, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” The stage was further lit up with the presence of jazz maestro Christian McBride, who joined the siblings on stand-up bass for this festive treat. McBride shared his excitement about the collaboration, expressing his fondness for working with Eilish and admiring the warmth of her family.

SNL Sketches and Musical Magic

Eilish did more than sing. She showcased her acting chops in SNL sketches like “Tampon Farm” and “Whiskers R We,” where she and Kate McKinnon ran a cat shelter in hilarious fashion. These performances follow in the footsteps of recent SNL musical guests like Olivia Rodrigo and Tate McRae, echoing Eilish’s previous SNL appearances in 2021 and 2019.

Accolades and Grammy Nods for “What Was I Made For?”

Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” isn’t just a fan favorite; it’s a critical darling, too. The song bagged five Grammy nominations, including Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. It’s also in the running for a Golden Globe for Best Song in a Motion Picture.
