Eilish’s hourlong “ACL” set debuts Saturday on PBS.
Can't get enough of watching Billie Eilish perform on TV after the Grammys? Fans won't have to wait much longer, because her hourlong set at Austin City Limits from October will premiere on PBS on Saturday. (The broadcast will also be available for streaming online starting Sunday.)
The five-time Grammy-winning artist taped her entire performance in Austin, Texas, on Oct. 11, 2019, between her two headlining weekends at the festival. The hour runs through her entire 14-song set from her No. 1 Streets Talkin 200 debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? along with breakout hits from her earlier days, and she kicks it all off with her Streets Talkin Hot 100 No. 1 hit "Bad Guy."
Throughout the set, her brother and right-hand music man Finneas contributes vocals as well as plays the guitar and keyboard, alongside drummer Andrew Marshall.
"I was 13, [Finneas] was 17…. We both wrote music, and we loved music," Eilish says in a sit-down interview toward the end of the clip. "It kind of started off as he had written this song and I sang it and then I had written this song and we recorded that and we just put both of them out. And it wasn't any expectation, it wasn't for any reason besides the fact that we just wanted to. And then he wrote the song 'Ocean Eyes' and put it out and got huge."
It was also announced Wednesday (Jan. 29) that Eilish will have a special performance at the Academy Awards on Feb. 9, so the TV hits keep coming.
Watch Eilish perform "Bad Guy" to open Austin City Limits performance below, and stay tuned this weekend for the entire PBS musical special.
