Billie Eilish added yet another award to her résumé at the 2020 Brit Awards when she took home the trophy for International Solo Artist. But when she got on stage at the O2 Arena in London to collect her award, she made a comment about how hated she has felt lately and how much she appreciated seeing smiling faces in the crowd. She said, "I've felt very hated recently, and when I was on the stage and I saw you guys all smiling at me, it genuinely made me want to cry."

Earlier in the show, Billie and her brother Finneas performed the latest James Bond song, "No Time to Die," for the crowd in attendance. She's the youngest singer ever to have been given a Bond song in the history of the franchise. She and Finneas produced it together and Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley provided the orchestral arrangements, according to CNN. The song will be featured in the upcoming Bond film of the same name, released in the next couple of months.

Billie's been a hot topic lately, especially since Grammys night when she took home all the huge awards — Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist — and looked almost uncomfortable accepting all her trophies that were well-earned. She became the youngest artist ever to sweep the big awards at just 18 years old, beating out Taylor Swift's old record, and solidified her place in music history — lime green hair and all.

Billie also performed at this year's Academy Awards in Los Angeles, where she sang The Beatles' hit song "Yesterday" as part of the In Memoriam tribute to Hollywood figures who passed away in the last year. She was accompanied by her brother Finneas, as always. However, it was her facial expressions while in the crowd, including during Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph's comedy schtick. Her confused expression — which we actually think might have been because she knew the camera was on her and she balked — quickly went viral and not all the comments were nice.

Billie has had a wild award season, to say the least. She's performed on numerous stages, and even though she thought her Oscars performance was "trash," we beg to differ. And whether it was people hating on her for that performance or her struggle to make an eloquent acceptance speech at the Grammys (she's 18 years old and new to this!), the fact remains that she's an incredibly talented performer who will only go up from here. We love that she was bold enough to bring it up on stage at the Brit Awards and thank the fans for their support. You got this, Billie!
