    And Genesis just so happens to be a HUGE Billie Eilish fan, so her mom surprised her with a backstage meet and greet.

    Genesis LOVED every minute of it. Just sign her up as Billie's backup singer, because she knew every word to her songs. You can also see Momma Viola vibing to the music in the background.


    Once it was finally time to meet Billie, Genesis couldn't help crying. The "Bad Guy" singer hugged Genesis and consoled her as she continued to cry.


    You know who else was feeling the love? Viola, which is why she dedicated this sweet caption to Billie:

    @BillieEilish, you have no idea how much this meeting meant to my daughter! Thanks for your brilliance and kindness! And thanks for lending your gifts to Breast Cancer survivors

    I don't know about you, but I let out a dramatic "Aww" when I saw this.
