This year’s Oscars will feature a “special performance” from one of the music industry’s biggest stars Billie Eilish. 

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences took to social media Wednesday to announce that the 18-year-old singer will perform at this year’s Awards ceremony. She joins previously announced performers Elton John who will perform his nominated song “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from the movie Rocketman, Cynthia Erivo who will sing “Stand Up” from Harriet, and Adina Menzel who will sing “Into the Unknown” from Frozen II. 

News of Eilish’s performance follows her history-making night at the Grammys where she officially became the second-ever youngest artist in history to win the big four: album of the year, pop vocal album, record, and song of the year alongside the best new artist award. 

The Oscars will take place Sunday, February 9, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
