After sweeping the 2020 Grammys, Billie Eilish will perform at the Oscars.
Previously announced performers for the 2020 Oscars include Randy Newman and Elton John. While Eilish isn’t nominated for the Best Original Song award, she is creating a song for the new James Bond movie.
Eilish made history this past weekend at the 2020 Grammy Awards. She became the youngest artist ever to win all four major categories. Her wins include Song of the Year, Best New Artist, Album of the Year, and Record of the Year.
Eilish is also the youngest artist in history to write and record a Bond theme song. Her work for the Bond movie may net her an Academy Award in the future. Two songs have won in that category in the past decade. They include Adele’s “Skyfall” and Sam Smith’s “Writing’s on the Wall.”
Both Adele and Smith got their Bond movie gig after sweeping the Grammys, so it’s no surprise that Eilish is up next. No Time to Die will release in the US on April 10th through MGM.
Eilish was the first artist to sweep the Big Four Grammy Awards since Christopher Cross. Cross also performed on the Oscar stage, although his appearance was the following year. This marks the second year in a row that the Oscars has booked a huge star from the Grammy Awards. Last year, Kacey Musgraves received the honor.
Eilish’s big wins at the Grammys hasn’t slowed her down a bit, either. Last week, she released the official music video for her new song, “everything i wanted.” The video was directed by Eilish and features the singer and her brother Finneas, who co-writes many of her songs.
The songwriting duo dominated much of 2019, and it looks as though 2020 is shaping up to be the same. Eilish’s Oscar performance at the 92nd Academy Awards is happening February 9th.
