Billie Eilish jumped at a Los Angeles Dodgers game on Thursday, July 21 and scored a spot on the coveted “dance cam” between innings, dancing to one of his own songs.
A clip from the show, streamed via ESPN, showed Eilish happily dancing to her 2019 hit, “Bad Guy,” with one of the announcers joking, “It’s cool to dance to your own tune at the Dodgers. Stadium?” Props to the announcer for correctly spotting Eilish’s brother/collaborator Finneas, who didn’t follow the dance camera rules and remained seated, but looked rather amused by the whole situation.

Turns out Eilish’s dance cam cameo was just the second biggest thing to happen to her yesterday after she surprised fans with a new two-song EP, guitar songs. The project featured two tracks, ‘TV’ – which Eilish has performed live on tour several times – and a new track ‘The 30th’.
In an interview with Zane Lowe, Eilish explained that she wrote “The 30th” last December, and it was the first song she wrote after her album, happier than ever. The song describes a heartbreaking accident, which Eilish suggested she witnessed in real life.
“[S]Something happened on November 30, and it had been the most indescribable thing to have witnessed and experienced. I had written down all these thoughts I had,” Eilish said. “I was with Finneas, and I was like, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t know what you were planning on doing, but we need to write this song about it right now.'”
