It was the first time the star had performed her latest release

Billie Eilish performed her new single ‘Therefore I Am’ live for the first time at the American Music Awards 2020 tonight (November 22).

The pop star released the track – her first piece of new music since July’s ‘My Future’ – earlier this month (13).

Performing from a red-lit set designed to look like separate rooms, Eilish prowled around the corridors and stairs before finding her brother Finneas and drummer Andrew Marshall. Watch the performance below now.


Eilish is nominated for Favourite Social Artist and Favourite Artist – Alternative Rock at the ceremony, which is taking place at LA’s Microsoft Theatre. You can keep up with all the winners as they’re announced here.
