Billie Eilish to perform 'special' set at the 2020 Oscars
She’s the *drum roll* gold guy. Duh.
The Academy Awards are primed will get a jolt of Gen Z energy when 18-year-old pop — and now five-time Grammy-winning — superstar Billie Eilish takes the Oscars stage for a special performance at the Feb. 9 ceremony.
Billed simply as a “special” set, full details on the planned performance have yet to be announced. Representatives for the Academy did not immediately respond to EW’s request for more information.
The news comes three days after the “Bad Guy” singer made history at the 2020 Grammys when she became the youngest artist to win all four major categories, including Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year, as well as Best Pop Vocal Album.
Earlier this month, MGM announced Eilish would record the theme song for the 25th James Bond movie No Time to Die, which is set for release on April 10. The film’s title track will be a collaboration with Eilish’s brother, Finneas, who also produced her No. 1-debuting freshman album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (Finneas won all five of the Grammys for which he was nominated, sharing Record, Album, and Song of the Year honors with his sister, while also picking up trophies for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, and Producer of the Year, Non-Classical.)
Other celebrities confirmed to appear at the 92nd Oscars ceremony include presenters Zazie Beetz, Timothée Chalamet, Will Ferrell, Gal Gadot, Mindy Kaling, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anthony Ramos, Mark Ruffalo, Kelly Marie Tran, and Kristen Wiig; Cynthia Erivo, Chrissy Metz, Elton John, Idina Menzel, and Randy Newman have all been confirmed as fellow performers on Hollywood’s biggest night.
The 2020 Oscars broadcast live Sunday, Feb. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
