Glass Animals Deliver Dreamy Performance of 'Heat Waves' From a Bed at 2021 Billboard Music Awards

On Sunday night at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards, UK rock band and two-time finalists Glass Animals performed their hit "Heat Waves."

Following an excited introduction from actress Kathryn Hahn -- who noted the members have known one another since grade school and that this was their debut BBMAs performance -- at-home viewers were greeted with an aerial shot of frontman Dave Bayley lying down on a plush bed surrounded by pastel-colored pink and purple pillows.

"Heat Waves" was a finalist for top rock song, but earlier in the night, Bayley joked during the E! pre-show that thanks to the band's inclusion in the top rock album category -- in which they were finalists alongside Bruce Springsteen -- his mom finally stopped asking him to consider going back to school.

To end the performance of their laid-back summer hit, during which the crowd clapped along, Bayley flopped back onto the bed as if it was all a dream.
