Billie Eilish’s Reactions To Oscars Performances Inspire Memes
Pop icon Billie Eilish was able to take stage at the Oscars last night, and perform The Beatle’s song “Yesterday” for the In Memoriam tribute. While she delivered a solid performance at the show, it was her live reactions to several performers that truly captivated people on social media, and those watching the event at home.
Detroit legend and 8-Mile star Eminem rapped one of his most famous songs, “Lose Yourself.” Eminem was nominated for Best Song Writer in 2003, but was never able to perform the song at the award ceremony. Seventeen years later, he’s finally been given the green light.
Eilish, who was eleven months old when the song was released, can be seen here not enjoying the performance as much as the older people around her are.

Growing up in the late 1990s, my parents forced me to listen to incredibly old artists such as Hootie & The Blowfish, or Nickelback. I personally understand Billie Eilish’s confusion here, but users of Twitter were not as understanding of Eilish’s ‘disrespect’ to the iconic rap artist.
Ok Billie Eilish looking lost during Eminem at the Oscars. She needs some musical education (and to stop always looking like something around her stinks.) I know she’s young but come on! It’s Eminem!

Although, Eilish isn’t totally alone during the rapper’s performence. The Irishman director Martin Scorsese also appeared unamused during the whole fiasco.

When Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig gave a fantastic performance last night, as the two Saturday Night Live alumni joined forces to deliver a humorous monologue about acting, before giving the award for Best Costume Design and Best Production Design.
During their monologue, is when Eilish is seen giving her puzzled look, to mixed reactions on Twitter.

I will NOT stand for Billie Eilish making that shitty brat face while Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig sing an acapella costume design medley

Whether her faces were intentional or not, it is worth noting that Eilish has Tourette’s Syndrome, and therefore may have been reacting to tics.
