Billie Eilish is primed to quell our quarantine blues with a live performance of her latest single “Therefore I Am” at the American Music Awards, November 22.

The alt-pop star returns to the awards stage for the second time after performing “All the Good Girls Go to Hell,” at last year’s show. But we all know this performance will be different thanks to the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing guidelines. If you’re searching for clues as to how Billie will approach the live world premiere, look no further than the music video for “Therefore I Am.”

Strutting around an empty shopping mall sporting casual punk rock attire, Billie thrashes about the hollow retail shell and reminds everyone the joys of mall walking before quarantine.

Remember the mall? It was this giant building with stores galore. The possibilities were endless. You could eat a giant pretzel and try on pants. Buy a cell phone case and box of chocolates within the same 10 minute period. Remember?

Hopefully the American Music Awards will let Billie get creative with her stage craft, while adhering to social distancing guidelines. The singer, who’s nominated for Favorite Alternative Rock Artist and Favorite Social Artist, joins a long list of celebrities set to perform at the event.


Jennifer Lopez and Maluma are set to perform "Pa' Ti" and "Lonely.” K-pop superstars BTS will bring the "Dynamite" with their live performance, and Shawn Mendes will make his fifth appearance at the awards show. Check out a complete list of nominees.
