Billie Eilish Is Giving Everyone A New Reason To Watch The Oscars This Year

It's her world and we're just living in it.

Billie Eilish may be having a better 2020 than anyone else. After absolutely dominating the Grammys with her historic sweep, the musical prodigy has just been announced as a performer at this year's Oscars.

The 92nd annual Academy Awards will air Feb. 9 on ABC.

Yes, Billie — along with presenters like Timothée Chalamet and Will Ferrell — will be giving the world a whole new reason to tune in (and, TBH, will be making the marathon show go by a lot faster).

Watch a special performance by Billie on the 92nd #Oscars on Sunday, February 9. @theacademy @ABCNetwork

The 2020 Oscars will also have performances from Cynthia Erivo, Elton John, Idina Menzel, Chrissy Metz, and Randy Newman.

Obviously, Billie's fans are super pleased about this news.

@billieeilish @TheAcademy @ABCNetwork She’s really out here killing it

Although what Billie will be performing has yet to be announced, some are speculating that she may use the opportunity to premiere her theme song for the upcoming James Bond film, No Time to Die.

@billieeilish @TheAcademy @ABCNetwork OMG WHEN SHE DEBUTS THE BOND THEME AT THE OSCARS AND THEN COMES BACK NEXT YEAR TO WIN BEST ORIGINAL SONG TO BECOME OSCAR WINNING BILLIE EILISH 😭😭 we just KEEP WINNING OMFG

@billieeilish @TheAcademy @ABCNetwork she’s singing her james bond song i’m speaking that shit into existence

But others have different theories. Could Billie be part of the impending Kobe Bryant tribute?

@lmtwy @billieeilish @TheAcademy @ABCNetwork I doubt it, Cause if the song is up for an award next year ( which I am sure it will be) she can’t sing it two years in a row. My guess is it’s a tribute to Kobe Bryant. They are doing a “special performance” for him

Or is she going to perform her hit "Bad Guy," which was featured prominently in Bombshell?

@billieeilish @TheAcademy @ABCNetwork 🎤 Bad Guy @TheAcademy

Either way, thankfully for us, this is probably the first of many Oscar appearances for Billie.

I hope Billie Eilish wins an Oscar for that James Bond song she's gonna record. Ngoba niyahlupha manje

Soooo highly likely Billie Eilish will win an Oscar for the James Bond song.
