Watch Billie Eilish Join James Corden For ‘Carpool Karaoke’
In a wonderfully surreal episode, Eilish sang her hits ‘Ocean Eyes’ and ‘Bad Guy’, plus a cover of The Beatles‘ ‘I Will’ performed on a ukulele.
Billie Eilish has made a typically wild appearance on James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ – with their segment involving her pet spider, a Justin Bieber cover and visiting Eilish’s parents.
In the episode, Eilish and Corden visit her parents’ house, where the singer makes Corden begrudgingly hold her pet spider.
As well as performing Eilish’s hits ‘Ocean Eyes’ and ‘Bad Guy’, she sang a cover of The Beatles‘ ‘I Will’ on a ukulele. You can check the ‘Carpool Karaoke’ footage out below.
Elsewhere, Eilish told how she met Justin Bieber at Coachella, before performing Ludacris’ verse from Bieber’s hit ‘Baby’.
Eilish and Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ was part of a Christmas episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden, which also featured Mariah Carey singing ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ to mark the new 25th anniversary of Carey’s festive album Merry Christmas.
Eilish’s appearance on the show came the day after her 18th birthday (18 December), which she marked by posting an emotional message on Instagram, performing an improvised song interspersed with footage from her concerts.
NME recently named Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? as their Album Of 2019. To coincide with the honour, Eilish was interviewed for NME’s Big Read slot, in which she spoke about her success in 2019 and her hopes for the future.
Speaking about ‘Bad Guy’, Eilish said: “I knew I liked the song a lot, but I had no idea what to expect. When we were making that song, me and Finneas thought nobody was going to care about it. We thought they’d like it, but we didn’t think it would do what it did.”
As uDiscover Music recently reported, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? has also been nominated for Best Album at the Grammys, where Eilish is also up for Best New Act.
