Billie Eilish shines as host and performer on ‘Saturday Night Live’

Billie Eilish delivered an excellent monologue, gave great performances in skits and in the interpretation of his music, and wore a Simone rocha sheer dress meant to look like “Mrs. Claus going to the club,” for her return to Saturday Night Live.

Eilish, 19, previously appeared on the show in 2019, but this time around she was a host and musical guest, joining artists like Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande and Blake Shelton who flexed their comedy chops on the SNL stage.

Eilish has received undue criticism in the past for her styling choices, and she didn’t hesitate to bring up the subject in the series’ opening monologue. She was able to riffle humorously, fearing she’d only worn loose clothes in the past because she was “two kids stacked on top of each other trying to squeeze into an R-rated movie.”

Along with scathing jokes about her style and family, Eilish gave remarkable insight into her childhood in the public eye. She shared that the scariest part of becoming famous is that “people just decide that everything you say, do, and look like is who you are forever. It is not fair. Would you want to be judged by how you presented yourself at 16? “

Eilish illustrates how ridiculous this point is by presenting anyone who looks at a photo of a 16-year-old Weekend Update host in glasses. Colin Jost to the bursts of laughter from the crowd.

Eilish fits perfectly into the SNL kicked off fun vacation-themed skits and performed his songs “Happier Than Ever” and “Male Fantasy” on the show.

His second studio album Happier than ever, which released on July 30, 2021, has been ranked worldwide and has already been placed on several year-end lists. Eilish was also nominated for 7 awards at the 64th Grammy’s for the album, to be held Jan.31, 2022, with Trevor Noah as the host.
