Billie Eilish Talks Grammy Nominations, Gets Extremely Excited After Spotting Billie Joe at the 2019 AMAs

Billie Eilish caught up with Billboard’s Tetris Kelly on the red carpet at the 2019 American Music Awards on Sunday (Nov. 24), chatting about her excitement over her six Grammy nominations.

Asked which of the nominations means the most to her, Eilish begins to reply that getting nominated for best new artist is the most meaningful, but she then notices another famous Billie in the distance and stops to shout, “Oh my god, Billie Joe!” (Green Day was also set to take the stage later that evening.)

“But no, like all of the nominations are like, who would have ever thought, ever?” she continues. “That never even, oh my god, I don’t know, my life.”

You can watch Eilish excitedly discuss her nominations in the video above.
