Billie Eilish Admits Using A Body Double During Her Performance At Coachella Last April

In a recent interview with Matt Wilkinson for Apple Music, Billie Eilish made a very strange confession: she admitted using a body double during her performance at Coachella last April. One of her dancers used a disguise and took her place on stage:

“At Coachella, I had a body double, one of my dancers that was one of my dancers for the show,” she explained. “I dressed her up in a show look that I had worn before. We got a black wig and we put buns in it and we gave her a mask and sunglasses and she wore my shoes and my socks. I put her up at the back of the stage and she stood there while the lights went on and everybody thought it was me. And nobody ever knew it wasn’t me, literally nobody knew. And while she’s up there, I put on a big black coat and a traffic vest and a hood and just glasses.”

Wilkinson was asking her if she has ever gone undercover to watch other artists perform, and this led to the story above. We don’t know how long the body double impersonated Billie Eilish on stage, but if Billie had the time to walk around wearing a big black coat, hood, and glasses as she said, I suppose this could have been for a little while. Did this last during an entire song? And in this case, did the faux Billie lip-synch? Does the real Billie Eilish lip-synch during her performance?

I don’t know why she thought it was a good idea to tell this story, it was probably a very small part of the interview, but it has already attracted a lot of attention from many media. It doesn’t resonate very well among certain people and has a Milli-Vanilli vibe. At a time when pop stars’ authenticity is often questioned, her detractors will certainly have another argument to throw at her face. Billie was honest but somewhat quite naïve.

Isn’t a body double cheating in a way? If you pay a large amount of money to see a pop star perform on stage, you don’t want to be duped and watch a body double, even for a few minutes. Who knows when she used a body double, was Coachella the only time? Eilish is performing today at the legendary Glastonbury festival, and people will necessarily ask themselves: are we looking at the real Billie?
