Billie Eilish Admits Using Body Double For Coachella Festival Performance

Billie Eilish has admitted that when we've seen her performing on stage it hasn't always been her up there.

The 20-year-old confessed to using a body double during an interview with Matt Wilkinson for Apple Music, where she spilled the beans after being asked whether she'd ever gone undercover during festivals to watch other artists perform their songs.

Eilish admitted she had, though said her attempts at going incognito 'didn’t work', which is understandable considering she's a world famous singer with seven Grammy awards under her belt.

She did reveal that she'd pulled the body double stunt during a performance at Coachella, a festival Eilish headlined this year in April.

The singer explained how she pulled off the old switcheroo with the help of one of her dancers and a handy disguise of one of her old outfits.

She said: "At Coachella, I actually did it because the beginning of Coachella, I had a body double, one of my dancers that was one of my dancers for the show.

"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."

The singer is currently on her Happier Than Ever tour, which wraps up in the UK with a pair of shows at the O2 in London this weekend before heading abroad.

Her tour will wrap up with a series of dates in Australia in September after heading through Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, the Phillipines, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Japan and New Zealand.
