Billie Eilish pulled double duty on the December 11 episode of SNL. One particular sketch had the audience laughing-out-loud. Eilish and Heidi Gardner were part of a sketch where they directed rehearsals for a hip-hop inspired musical. 

According to Billie, “Christmas theme” was “too Boomer and this year we’re switching it up” with Hip-Hop. Billie Eilish then demonstrated various hip-hop moves with Heidi Gardner with a comedic twist.

First Hip-Hop move was “the pimp walk”. “Ya’ll are up here,” Billie began, motioning to her upper body. She then dropped her stance to demonstrate what she meant. “But hip hop is down here. The streets are in the knees,” she said, nearly cracking up. “Are they?” Chris Redd responded.

Next up was Twerking. “When you land I want booty booty… watch me pop my butt! Can everyone see my butt?” Billie asked the actors as she showed off her take on the move, wearing a black sequin t-shirt and ’80s inspired curls. “It’s a hip pop!” Heidi dramatically added, calling over an actor dressed as Jesus Christ to Twerk with them. 

In addition to “Happier Than Ever“, the pop star was joined by her brother Finneas for an acoustic rendition of ‘Male Fantasy’. The performance saw the pair sitting on a living room floor. It echoes the Eilish-directed music video for the track that came out earlier this week (December 6), where she takes to various rooms in her home as she tries to get over a break up.
