The 17-year-old star took the stage at this year's 102.7 KIIS FM Jingle Ball of iHeartRadio and it was great as always! Not only that, but there is one more reason why Billie Eilish got attention, apart from her talent, and that is her decision to pay tribute to a celebrity: Britney Spears!
Billie was wearing a basketball shirt and shorts that had an impression of the pop legend's face and, in case there was confusion about what image he was wearing in his outfit, Britney's name was also there!
It's great to see love from last summer, Britney also showed some appreciation to the youngest singer by sharing a clip of her dance with Billie's bad boy while doing a chore on Slave 4 U of the MTV VMA of 2001 ! Iconic!
Interestingly, singer Gen Z was born three months after that performance!
Still, it seems she could be a big fan of Britney, however, since she commented: "OMG,quot; under her video in June.
And now, she is paying him an appropriate tribute on stage!

Maybe Billie can relate since she, like Britney, started her career very early.
Finneas O'Connell, Billie's brother and fellow musician, composer and producer, talked about his sister being in the spotlight at such a young age at the show.
He told E! News that "I think it is really difficult to navigate in your teens and much less navigate as a person with a lot on your plate, with a lot to do." I think he has done incredibly well and I am very proud of her. I couldn't imagine a person who turns 18 with more to be proud of. "
