Kelly Clarkson Sings Billie Eilish: Look + Listen

During the Kellyoke segment of Friday’s Kelly Clarkson Show (3.29), the show’s host delivered an über-emotional version of Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?”

Wearing a red dress backed by her full band and a Barbie-inspired wall of pink lights, the superstar singer/songwriter sang “Takin’ a drive, I was an ideal/ Looked so alive, turns out I’m not real/ Just something you paid for/ What was I made for?”

The original Billie Eilish co-written and performed from the 2023 Barbie movie won best original song at the 81st annual Golden Globe Awards, and best original song at the Oscars, making the 22-year old and her brother Finneas the youngest two-time Oscar winners in history in any category.

The siblings also won best song written for visual media and song of the year at the 2024 Grammys with “What Was I Made For?,” putting them in a rare class of artists to score major nominations for the same song from both the Recording Academy and the Oscars. “That was a crazy list of incredible people, incredible artists, incredible music,” said Eilish when accepting the award.
