Billie Eilish, Saturday Night Live

In case you missed it, Eilish helped kick off the 45th season by performing on the late-night show for the very first time.

The episode, hosted by Woody Harrelson, saw the artist performing her hits “bad guy” and “i love you.”

Kicking things off with “bad guy,” Eilish performed inside of a rotating set that made it appear as if she was walking up the walls and across the ceiling.

You can check out the incredible performance below!

Now, Eilish has explained how she pulled it off. She said for this song, she was in a box that looked like the real SNL stage. 

“And, you know, I started walking on the walls,” she said. “Basically it was inspired by this scene from Royal Wedding with Fred Astaire where he walks on all the walls of the ceiling.” 

She explained her vision for the performance to her team by replicating it with a tissue box so they could perfect the timing of everything. 

“Pretty much everyone I know was excited about it,” Eilish said. “We have had more rehearsal time than any other thing we’ve done.” 

You can see the entire process come together for how her “bad guy” performance came to be below. 

Also on the show, she returned later to strip things down with an acoustic version of “i love you” with her brother Finneas.

You can view that performance below.
