Fresh off an epic performance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon the night before, Billie Eilish took to the Bowery Ballroom stage on Friday night to show New York City that she doesn’t mess around. Over the last year, the teen queen has quickly risen up in pop music, proving that she’s a force to be reckoned with. At the age of 16, she’s wise beyond her years and performs as if she’s been doing so for decades.
Eilish’s set was positively electric. Her set was filled with songs from her debut EP, Don’t Smile At Me, and the sold-out crowd sang every word back to her. In the middle of her set, Eilish took a few minutes to play a cover of “Hotline Bling” by: Drake, and also gave her brother Finneas the opportunity to play his song “New Girl”. Eilish’s fans lived and breathed every word she sang. They related to her lyrics just as much as she did, and it was clear that meant the world to her every time she held out her microphone gesturing for the crowd to sing. She closed out her set with “Copycat”, which was the lead single off her EP.
Billie Eilish isn’t just another teenage pop artist. She’s on the forefront of a new generation of pop music and is here to show the world what she’s made of. Eilish is in the middle of a sold-out North American tour, and will be making her way back around the country this summer at a bunch of festival appearances.
