And it was all thanks to the Oscars. Last night, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig graced us with their presence by presenting Best Production Design and Best Costume Design. During their bit while presenting the Best Costume Design Oscar, Maya and Kristen did a little song. And in the middle of their song, the camera cut to 18-year-old Billie Eilish (dressed like a twin sized mattress, thanks to Chanel) appearing to look perplexed while wondering who those old people on stage are. Which in turn, made her the biggest winner of the night by becoming a meme.
Here’s Billie looking like she’s cringing at the comedy singing styles of Rudolph + Wiig!

And here’s what the internet had to say about Billie saying WTF in face language:

There is debate on whether or not she was confused over what was going on or was trying to figure out who those grandmas on stage were since she was pretty much a baby when Maya and Kristen were on SNL. Others mentioned that Billie has Tourette’s so she may have just been naturally HUH-ing in the face and wasn’t responding to anything specific.
I appreciated Billie’s cringe-face, because I made the same face before the Oscars when Billy Porter interviewed her and her brother Finneas O’Connell on the carpet and she said that one of her favorite movies growing up was The Babadook.
