Greta Gerwig made an appearance on Saturday Night Live to introduce musical guest Billie Eilish alongside host Kate McKinnon. Eilish performed “What Was I Made For?”, a song from the Barbie soundtrack.
McKinnon and Gerwig appeared on screen, embracing each other to present Eilish, who was in the background.
In Eilish’s performance, a montage of home videos and unseen photos of past and present female cast members appeared. The tribute came as an ode to the emotional scene in the Barbie film where Eilish’s song appears.
Eilish is no stranger to SNL; this appearance is her third sting on the NBC late-night show. In 2021, the Oscar and Grammy award winner performed double duty as host and musical guest.
“What Was I Made For?” was co-written by Eilish and her brother Finneas. The song has already won an award at the Billboard Music Awards in the Favorite Movie Song category. In addition, the song has scored five Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Song Written for Visual Media.
