LIVE PERFORMANCE: BILLIE EILISH | HAPPIER THAN EVER & MALE FANTASY (SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE)
Billie Eilish returned to Saturday Night Live on Dec. 11, pulling double duty as host and musical guest. Between some hilarious sketches, the 19-year-old superstar singer delivered memorable performances of songs from her latest album, "Happier Than Ever." The pop star was joined by her brother Finneas for an acoustic rendition of ‘Male Fantasy’ that saw the pair sitting on a living room floor. The performance echoes the Eilish-directed music video for the track that came out earlier this week (December 6), where she takes to various rooms in her home as she tries to get over a breakup. Eilish and Finneas were then joined by a drummer for a plugged-in rendition of her second album’s title track, with Eilish singing over industrial drums and snarling guitar riffs. This marked Eilish’s second-time performance on the NBC sketch comedy show. She made her "SNL" debut in 2019, defying gravity with her “Bad Guy” performance in a rotating set and performing “I Love You” alongside Finneas. Eilish is coming off the late summer release of her second studio album, "Happier Than Ever," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The release garnered multiple nominations at the upcoming 2022 Grammys, including record and song of the year.
