Five time Grammy Award-winning Darkroom/Interscope Records artist Billie Eilish has confirmed she will perform at the 92nd Oscars on Sunday, Feb. 9, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood. The show will be televised live on ABC at 8 p.m. ET, and will air live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide. “The Oscars Red Carpet Show” will air at 6:30 p.m.

This past Sunday, Eilish made history as the youngest artist to win in all four major categories. The 18-year-old took away five wins in total, for Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album. Her brother and sole collaborator FINNEAS took home an additional two Grammy Awards for Producer of the Year, Non Classical and Best Engineered Album, Non Classical.

Last week,  Eilish released the official music video for her song “everything i wanted.” The video was directed by  Eilish and features both her and FINNEAS. An ode to sibling love, watch the video HERE.

Earlier this month, it was announced Eilish would perform the title song to the upcoming 25th James Bond film, “No Time To Die” (In theaters April 2). The multi-Platinum-selling singer wrote the title song with FINNEAS.  Eilish is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song.

“We are excited to announce that Billie and FINNEAS have written an incredibly powerful and moving song for ‘No Time To Die,’ which has been impeccably crafted to work within the emotional story of the film,” said producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

Eilish said, “It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock.”

FINNEAS added, “Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Live And Let Die.’ We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007.”

“There are a chosen few who record a Bond theme. I am a huge fan of Billie and FINNEAS. Their creative integrity and talent are second to none and I cannot wait for audiences to hear what they’ve brought – a fresh new perspective whose vocals will echo for generations to come,” director Cary Joji Fukunaga said.

Eilish released her debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” in March 2019.
