Watch Billie Eilish sing ‘Bury A Friend’ live at Radio 1’s Big Weekend — cool and superb vocals

Billie Eilish is one of the biggest up and coming artists in the indie music world at the moment. Particularly with the release of her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, and its massive success.

So it is probably no surprise then that when we got to see Billie Eilish sing ‘Bury a Friend‘ live at Radio 1’s Big Weekend this afternoon (Saturday May 25th, 2019 — the live feed is amazing if you’re in the UK), not only did the crowd go wild, but half of them knew every lyric of the song and sang right along with her.

(Which I’ve got to say, would piss me off if I was at the Big Weekend, as I pay to hear my favorite artists sing, and not the off-key crowd. But hey, that’s just me).

Of course, Eilish showed up on stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend wearing her usual comfortable and supremely baggy clothes. This time a fabulously bright and cool lime green t shirt and shorts set with her name printed all over it.

A shorts set that allowed Eilish to bounce around as she always does, gyrating to the music and, at one point, even leaning over so far backwards it looked like her back was a helluva lot bendier than most folks have ever been.

And yes, the crowd went wild.

Pretty easy to see why this still only 17-year-old singer is already so popular, and about to get even bigger in the future then, isn’t it?
