Billie Eilish made her return to Saturday night live for the third time as the show's musical guest over the weekend, which provided the perfect opportunity for a mini Barbie meeting, of some kind.
Host Kate McKinnon (who plays Weird Barbie in the film) was accompanied by Barbie director Greta Gerwig in a surprise cameo, and together the couple presented Eilish's first performance of the nightin which he sang his tune “What Was I Made For?” from the Barbie soundtrack.
For her performance, Eilish paid tribute to the emotional scene in which her song appears in the film, as a montage of old family photographs and videos of women. SNL Cast members played on the screens behind her.
Eilish is nominated for six GRAMMY Awards this year, five of those nominations for “What Was I Made For?” including Record of the Year, Best Song Written for Visual Media, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Music Video and Song of the Year.
Later in the episode, Eilish honored the holiday spirit with a beautiful and moving performance of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” accompanied by her brother FINNEAS on piano.
Saturday night live airs live, coast to coast, at 11:30 pm ET/8:30 pm PT on NBC.
