"I just want everyone to have a good time. That's always my only goal, even when you're watching the show at home."
Eilish went on to reveal that the experience will becoming even more worthwhile during her performance of "COPYCAT." "I make everybody get really low, and we all jump when the drop comes in. Even though you'll be watching on a VR headset, you should still get low and jump with everyone," she continued. She joins a string of other acts that have teamed up with shows in Oculus Venues, including Lupe Fiasco, Everclear, Tenacious D and more.
