Alicia Keys bestowed smart words to Billie Eilish.
On Monday, Oct. 5, the 18-year-old vocalist practically came by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with her sibling, singer-songwriter FINNEAS, and discussed their significant Grammy sweep in January. The brother or sister duo took house 11 Grammys in overall, which obviously they weren’t anticipating at all.
“It was pretty peak, not because we won, but just because we were there. Just being nominated is so amazing and rare. So that was…we were already happy,” she informed Jimmy Fallon. “I remember when we got there that morning me and FINNEAS were like, ‘We’re good, we don’t need to win. We’re already here. We’re not worried if we win or don’t win. It’s just amazing that we get to be here.'”
The “bad guy” vocalist likewise shared an individual call she got from Alicia following her legendary night of wins.
“The next day, we were over here and Alicia Keys called me and she wanted to congratulate me and she basically said on the phone which is something I hold so dear to me,” Billie started. “Because you know she won a billion Grammys when she was really young. And she called me and was like, ‘I just wanted to say, don’t be embarrassed for being dope.'”
