Billie Eilish gave the premiere performance of her latest song “Therefore I Am” at the 2020 American Music Awards on Sunday (Nov. 22).

Dressed in the same look from the mall-themed music video, Eilish appeared onstage amid flashing red, orange and yellow lights. Her brother Finneas accompanied her on guitar as she slinked down a series of narrow hallways, chanting the song’s playful lyrics: “Interviews, interviews, interviews/ When they say your name, I just act confused.”

To cap off the debut performance of the single, Eilish treated viewers to a surprising stunt. The moment came when she climbed a staircase, then suddenly fell backwards, vanishing from sight. Moments later, she reappeared in another spot on stage. Magic!
