The 96th Academy Awards were full of unforgettable moments. This includes Billie Eilish and her brother, Finneas, performing What Was I Made For from the Barbie movie. Both the film and song continue to be massive hits — in fact, Eilish won best song in a featured film with it. But before she secured the win, she had a much anticipated performance to deliver.

Although Eilish has performed this song live before, and at other award shows, she was particularly nervous last night, explaining that “… the Grammys is like your homie’s party … The Oscars is the coolest kids. What do the cool kids do at the table? I don’t know. It’s very intimidating. Performing at the Oscars, which I’ve done now twice: Terrifying. Horribly terrifying. But in a great way. I love it.”

Any nerves that Eilish has seems to melt away when she sings, causing the room to go silent. No matter how many times they perform this song, it never loses its magical qualities, something that can be seen in the emotional crowd. In fact, Eilish herself gets taken aback by their reaction, uttering a genuine, “whoa” as she looks out into the crowd.

“This song just hangs on stillness, then takes you just over, and brings you back and leaves you there,” one fan writes. “It’s incredible.”

“Made me cry yet again,” another person shares. “This is not just an incredibly beautiful song, it is something that strikes deep into the heart of so many of us. A masterpiece that will stand the test of time.”
