Billie Eilish delivered an excellent monologue, gave great performances in sketches and performing her music, and wore a Simone Rocha sheer dress meant to look like “Mrs. Claus going to the club,” for her return to Saturday Night Live.

Eilish, 19, performed on the show before in 2019, but she went double duty as host and musical guest this time, joining artists like Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande and Blake Shelton who have flexed their comedy chops on the SNL stage.

Eilish has received undue criticism in the past for her style choices, and she didn’t shy away from the topic in the show’s opening monologue. She was able to humorously riff on it, cracking that she only wore baggy clothes in the past because she was “two kids stacked on top of each other trying to sneak into an R-rated movie.”

Along with sharp jokes on her style and family, Eilish fit in some remarkable insight about growing up in the public eye. She shared that the scariest part of growing up famous is that, “people just decide that everything you say and do and look like is who you are forever. That’s not fair. Would you want to be judged by the way you presented yourself when you were 16?”

Eilish illustrates how ridiculous this point is by presenting everyone watching with a photo of a bespectacled, 16-year-old Weekend Update host Colin Jost to roars of laughter from the crowd.

Eilish fit right in with the SNL cast in some funny holiday-themed sketches and performed her songs “Happier Than Ever” and “Male Fantasy” on the show.

Her second studio album Happier Than Ever, which was released on July 30, 2021, charted worldwide and has already been placed on several year-end lists. Eilish has also been nominated for 7 awards at the 64th Grammy’s for the album, which will be held on January 31, 2022, with Trevor Noah slated to host.
