The Billie Eilish Oscars Moment That Has Twitter Fuming

February 14, 2020

Pop music phenomenon Billie Eilish is known
for turning heads and being at the center of controversy. That’s why it’s not a huge surprise that the
chartreuse-haired singer got herself into a bit of Twitter trouble when she was spotted
giving a funny look during Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph’s performance at the 2020 Oscars. Wiig and Rudolph were riffing on a bit about
their own abilities as singers and actors when they burst into an empowering medley
that included the songs “These Boots Were Made for Walkin'” and “Lady In Red.” While Wiig and Rudolph were doing their part
to empower comedians and women around the world, Eilish gave what appeared to be a disapproving
look that some are calling a “side eye.” Twitter was quick to point out the timing
of Eilish’s questionable facial expression and even quicker to point out what they thought
it could have meant. Still, other Twitter users jumped to Eilish’s
defense, saying she might have been grimacing after she saw the camera cut to her own face. Whatever the case, Billie Eilish’s facial
expression has Twitter talking and we’re here to look at what they’re saying. “Alright, this is gonna be good!” The alleged incident brought out the Twitter
sharks. One Twitter user likened Eilish’s look to
the collective expression of surprise many people had when she swept the top categories
at the 2020 Grammys. Along with a photo of Eilish’s face during
the Oscar skit, the person tweeted: “Same face we all made when you got all those
Grammy’s.” Ouch. Another Twitter user took a different route
with Eilish’s image. They wrote: “The face you make when you see old people
trying to be funny.” Still, other Twitter users morphed Eilish’s
alleged side-eye into a meme-worthy moment with one person tweeting, quote, “Me, remembering
tomorrow is Monday.” Honestly, same. All that being said, it’s entirely possible
that the singer didn’t mean to make a face at Wiig or Rudolph and actually did react
to seeing her own image on camera. For as many Twitter users that were attacking
Eilish or creating memes, there were just as many supporters standing up for her. Twitter user Juliet wrote: “[I] love how billie eilish just forgets that
shes famous sometimes, sees herself on the screen, and then remembers.” Regardless of the reason for the face, the
singer eventually redeemed herself on social media at least with a successful rendition
of “Yesterday” during the evening’s “In Memoriam” sequence. One thing is clear: Twitter was watching Billie
Eilish like a hawk during the 2020 Oscars, which must have made it even more nerve-wracking
when she had to go onstage to sing the Beatles’ classic. However, ever the cool-girl, Eilish didn’t
seem fazed. And while many were making the singer out
to be the wait for it “bad guy” earlier in the night, a lot of the hate seemed to melt
away following the performance. She pulled off a subdued and respectful performance
that left a number of Twitter users and fellow celebrities raving. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted: “Billie Eilish, that was heartbreakingly beautiful.” Actor Billie Dee Williams tweeted: “Billie Eilish, your performance tonight was
incredible. What a pleasure it was to watch you, thank
you!” One user took to the social media platform
to sing Eilish’s praises, writing, quote, “if billie eilish singing yesterday by the
beatles isnt one of the most beautiful and stunning things you’ve ever heard i don’t
know what is.” Another tweeted, quote, “If you think music
is dead, you haven’t heard #BillieEilish sing ‘Yesterday.’ Wow. Hauntingly beautiful.” For the most part, Eilish’s “In Memoriam”
performance left Twitter feeling great, but that doesn’t mean Eilish didn’t still run
into some Twitter hate. One Twitter user mashed up the performance
with Eilish’s purported side-eye look, writing, quote, “Does Billie Eilish even know who the
Beatles are?” Touché, twitter, touché. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

    I do not think she has any talent whatsoever. Shes just a girl who had good connects, and her "songs" have no actual lyrics. Just repetitions of the same sentence; over and over and over again, its actually insulting that she is as famous as she is with having no true talent.

    Oh for F* sake, that face happened when they showed her on the screen. Isn't there a big screen for people watch the freaking circus? She was watching it when they showed her on it and that face happened. Is exactly what that person said, she often forgets that she's famous now hahah anyway, even if that's wasn't the case , I'm pretty sure it summarized what a lot of people was feeling.
    There is a lot people hating on her because of that and it makes me sick… hypocrisy wins.

    Anyone who is a fan of Billie Eilish KNOWS she's very humble and self conscious, think of the baggy clothes so no one can body shame her, until she gets on stage and performs. If you watch the beginning of the camera shot she is smiling at the duo, then she sees herself on the screen and makes the face. She was reacting to seeing herself. If you get a chance to see her live GO!
    Enough said.
