Billie Eilish is reveling in a career highlight with the release of her James Bond theme song, "No Time To Die," but the pop superstar is feeling under the weather and it seems as if she's been sick for the last week.
"I was sick for all of the Oscars. I bombed that performance," Eilish, 18, said during a recent interview, in which she appeared to still be feeling sick. "That was trash. The Oscars is not my people. I'm not used to that. At least the Grammys wasn't as scary because it was, like, artists. And it felt like my people, it felt like, 'Oh, look, a bunch of artists!' And I knew a lot of them already and I'd met them and they knew of me."
On Sunday (February 9), Eilish took to the 2020 Oscars stage to sing a cover of The Beatles' "Yesterday" during the In Memoriam segment, which was introduced by Steven Spielberg. Alongside FINNEAS on piano, the star donned all black to sing a somber rendition of the 1965 track on the Dolby Theater stage. Among the photos and names that appeared during the segment included Kirk Douglas, Doris Day, and a moment for the late, great Kobe Bryant.
