Watch Billie Eilish Host, Perform “Happier Than Ever” and “Male Fantasy” on SNL
Host and musical performer Billie Eilish talks about why she used to exclusively wear baggy clothes and what it was like to grow up in the public eye.
Eilish spoofed TikTok, holiday traditions, and more in her first turn as Saturday Night Live host
Billie Eilish was the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live’s season finale.
She performed two songs from her new album Happier Than Ever: the title track and “Male Fantasy.” Eilish’s parents introduced the first performance, and her brother Finneas accompanied her on guitar for both songs. Watch the performances and Eilish’s sketches below.
Elsewhere in the episode, Eilish starred in sketches spoofing TikTok and hotel ads (both of which featured cameos from Finneas), holiday traditions, and more. In one clip titled “Lonely Christmas Ad,” Eilish and a psychotic old woman swap written messages at their apartment windows as a cover of the Smiths’ “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want” plays in the background. In a later sketch, Eilish stars as a lounge performer singing about an awkward exchange with Santa. Miley Cyrus also stopped by for a brief appearance in a skit about Christmas cards.
After releasing Happier Than Ever in August, Eilish sang the title track on Sesame Street, released a music video for “Male Fantasy,” channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe at the Met Gala, railed against the Texas abortion law at Austin City Limits.
Next year, she’s set to become the youngest ever solo headliner of Glastonbury festival with a Friday night set at the Pyramid Stage.
Billie Eilish Monologue SNL
Saturday Night Live host Billie Eilish switched gears mid-show with a wreath-smashing rendition of the epic title track, “Happier Than Ever.”
Singer’s brother and producer Finneas assisted on guitar on ‘Happier Than Ever’ and ‘Male Fantasy’
While taking on double duty as both the host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live, Billie Eilish performed a holiday-ready rendition of her chart-topping title track, “Happier Than Ever.”
After Eilish’s parents introduced the performance, the Grammy-winning artist began singing from a backstage location in an oversized black sweater and jeans. As the camera panned through the scene and the set began to open up, it was revealed that Eilish was actually seated before the crowd on-stage. Finneas then pulled out a black electric guitar for the transitional third verse, while large flashing wreaths rang in the holiday spirit.
Eilish also performed “Male Fantasy,” while seated cross-legged next to Finneas on the carpeted stage. With a more straightforward approach, the live rendition highlighted Eilish’s falsetto, while Finneas accompanied her vocals on the guitar.
