Billie Eilish is spending her awards season attending all the major shows for her Barbie song “What Was I Made For?” Tonight, she is back to being among her musician peers at the 2024 Grammys. The singer arrived at the ceremony with her brother, Finneas. She wore a Barbie varsity jacket over an oversized white Willy Chavarria button-up and black skinny tie, plus black pants. Her red and black hair was styled slick and down on a center part.
Eilish is performing tonight. Her song “What Was I Made For?” is also up for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Song Written for Visual Media, and Best Music Video. Separately, her Labrinth collaboration, “Never Felt So Alone,” is nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
Eilish has had a very successful award show run for “What Was I Made For” so far. She earned an Oscar nomination for the song in January. “thank you so much to the members of @theacademy for nominating “What Was I Made For?” we are endlessly grateful for this honor and to have been a part of @barbiethemovie 🎀,” Eilish wrote on Instagram when the news was announced. She included a photo of herself hugging Margot Robbie, Barbie’s executive producer who also played the titular character.
In mid-December, Eilish told Entertainment Weekly that the Barbie track was written during a hard time in her life. “It was a dark, slow period of time,” she said. “I was also in a weird place mentally in my life. We were in the studio and did come up with stuff, but nothing felt right. I don’t think I was able to be vulnerable and self-aware about my life and surroundings. That makes it hard to write sometimes. When we had this new thing to write about that wasn’t [about] my life, it was almost relieving. I didn’t have to worry about how I felt. I could just write from the perspective of this character. What was amazing is immediately after, I realized it was absolutely about me and my life. I didn’t even mean to do that.”
