Leave it to Billie Eilish to make a lasting first impression. Yesterday (September 28) marked the singer’s debut performance on Saturday Night Live, and boy, did she leave a few heads spinning once it was over.

Eilish hit the SNL stage for the first time ever this weekend with a topsy-turvy presentation of her track “Bad Guy,” which saw the 17-year-old defy gravity as she walked and danced along the walls of a rotating room, bringing audiences to a fit of cheers and applause for the mind-blowing showcase. In addition to her insane set, the songbird also toned things down with a stirring rendition of her record “I Love You” alongside brother Finneas, who also helped her write the heartfelt ballad.

Eilish’s SNL debut comes after weeks of anticipation from her fans. Earlier this week, the recording artist teased her musical performer appearance in a hilarious “New Kid”-inspired promo clip alongside Woody Harrelson ahead of the late-night sketch comedy show’s Season 45 premiere.

As if the SNL guest spot wasn’t exciting enough, Eilish is slated to draw an even larger audience with the “Where Do We Go? World Tour,” launching in March 2020. The jaunt will be in support of her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which spawned a number of successful singles including "Lovely," "Bury a Friend," and "When the Party's Over."

In related news, Eilish has been billed to perform at the 2019 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour presented by Capital One, kicking off on December 1 in Tampa, Florida, and will continue across the US throughout December including Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Atlanta, and Miami.
