Billie Eilish is a unique musical artist. That isn't breaking news, of course, but how she does what she does is quite interesting. She can get quite loud with her vocals and sounds amazing, but she rarely does that. Instead, she maintains a somewhat intense, yet welcoming, whisper. It is a bit surprising more people don't try her way, but then she is so good with her style that others would likely pale in comparison.

This is all to say that Billie Eilish is a great performer. Another great thing is that Eilish fans (and all lovers of music, obviously) will get to see her perform at the 2024 Oscar Awards. Eilish is nominated for Best Original Song for "What Was I Made For?" from the Barbie soundtrack. She will, of course, perform with her brother Finneas (who must be the most humble person on earth because he does not seem to mind Billie getting credit for all their success).

Billie Eilish is not the only musical performer during the Oscars, though. All of the Best Original Song nominees will appear. This includes Scott George and The Osage Singers performing "Wahzhazhe (A Song For My People)" from Best Picture nominee, Killers of the Flower Moon, Jon Batiste doing "It Never Went Away" from American Symphony, Becky G performing "The Fire Inside" from Flamin' Hot (which is, and I am not joking, about the guy who came up with idea for Flamin' Hot Cheetos), and Ryan Gosling and Mark Ronson doing "I'm Just Ken" which is also from Barbie.

To be fair, all the performances should be excellent. Batiste is unbelievably good live and I do not even actively listen to his albums. The Osage Singers will probably be very moving. Not all the songs will an award, obviously, but all are winners.

The Oscars will be held on Sunday, March 10, beginning at 7 pm ET (an hour earlier than previous ceremonies). They will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. ABC will carry the broadcast.
