Watch Billie Eilish and Finneas Perform ‘What Was I Made For?’ at 2024 Oscars

    Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell performed their Barbie ballad ‘What Was I Made For?’ at the 96th Academy Awards on Sunday night. A string orchestra joined the pair on the performance, which you can watch below.

    ‘What Was I Made For?’ won Best Original Song, beating out fellow Barbie track ‘I’m Just Ken’, which was written by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt and performed by Ryan Gosling; ‘It Never Went Away’ from American Symphony, music and lyrics by Jon Batiste and Dan Wilson; ‘Wahzhazhe (A Song for My People)’ from Killers of the Flower Moon, music and lyrics by Scott George; and ‘The Fire Inside’ from Flamin’ Hot, which was written by Diane Warren.

    Ludwig Göransson took home the award for Best Original Score for Oppenheimer, marking his second win from three Academy Awards nominations. He was nominated alongside Laura Karpman for American Fiction, John Williams for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Robbie Robertson for Killers of the Flower Moon, and Jerskin Fendrix for Poor Things.

    Last month, Eilish and Finneas performed ‘What Was I Made For?’ at the 2024 Grammy Awards, where it won Song of the Year.
