Keys is one of the guest hosts fronting The Late Late Show this week. During her show, Keys welcomed Eilish by joining her on piano and backing vocals for a special performance of ‘Ocean Eyes’, which featured on the latter’s 2016 debut EP ‘Don’t Smile at Me’.

Keys previously covered ‘Ocean Eyes’ back in August and shared footage of the rendition on her Instagram. “Billie Eilish giving me all the feels,” she wrote in a caption accompanying the performance clip. “Keep shining mama, writing that truth.”
