AceShowbiz - Billie Eilish has left audience and viewers at the 2020 BRIT Awards stunned. On Tuesday night, February 18, the "Bad Guy" hitmaker took the stage at The O2 Arena in London to deliver her first live performance of her new James Bond theme song, "No Time to Die".
Donning a black two-piece with her loose neon green tinted locks, the 18-year-old singer was accompanied by her record producer brother, Finneas O'Connell, on the piano. "Fool me once, fool me twice/ Are you death or paradise?/ Now you'll never see me cry/ There's just no time to die," she belted out while audience could be heard occasionally shouting, "I love you!"
Joining Billie and Finneas for the special performance were the film's composer Hans Zimmer as well as The Smiths' ex-guitarist Johnny Marr.
At the prize-giving show, the multiple Grammy winner was presented with Best International Female Solo Artist kudo from Spice Girls' Melanie C. When accepting the accolade, she confessed, "I've felt very hated recently. And, when I was on the stage and I saw you guys all smiling at me. It genuinely made me wanna cry. And I wanna cry right now, so thank you."
Hours before her live performance, Billie talked about being asked to sing the Bond theme song. During an interview with BBC Breakfast, she shared, "We've been wanting to make a Bond song for years. I remember at the beginning of last year we kind of told our whole team, 'Hey, if any Bond things come up, we want to be involved if we can possibly be. Whatever we have to do we will do.' "
Speaking of the song's live debut at the show, the "Wish You Were Gay" singer admitted, "I'm so scared." She continued to share, "We've never performed it ever, so it feels so weird that it's in the public, especially now that I'm performing it and I'm hitting a note I've never hit before. I'm scared."
