    Billie Eilish Performed The Bond Theme Song For The First Time At The Brits And Obviously She Nailed It, Belt Note And All

    Billie revealed earlier in the day that she was "terrified" of singing "No Time To Die" live for the first time because of *that* big note.

    Of course, among the biggest names of the night is Ms Eyelash herself, who showed up and showed out in head-to-sock Burberry, nails included.

    And it was a big night for Billie, who performed the brand new Bond song "No Time To Die" live for the first time alongside her big brother, Finneas.

    But interestingly, earlier this morning, the uber-confident teenager revealed that she was actually terrified for the performance and, in particular, the big note at the end!

    The ~Billie belt~ caused quite a stir after the Bond song dropped, not least because it was a brief departure from her trademark whisper-style singing.

    "I'm just nervous to hit the belt, to hit that high note," Billie said in an interview with BBC Breakfast. "I'm terrified. First time ever, so please take it easy on me, I'm scared."

    When asked if she was nervous about singing the song in front of her peers, Billie hilariously responded: "Oh hell no, I don't know who's coming."

    "It's just the song. I'm so scared because we've never performed it ever," Billie continued. "Up until the day it came out, we've been keeping it a secret for months, so it feels so weird that it's in the public, and especially now that I'm performing it and I'm hitting a note I've never hit before. I'm scared."

    But, of course, Billie had nothing to worry about — she nailed the performance flawlessly, belt note included!

    And, to cap off a pretty great night, she then went on to scoop the award for Best International Female Artist.
