Billie Eilish laughed after falling on stage while headlining the second Saturday of the Coachella music festival.
The pop megastar told fans she fell on her face after tripping over a piece of firefighting gear in the dark between songs.
The 20-year-old Oscar winner performed an explosive set that included the use of a crane and healthy accents, including a duet with her brother and co-writer Finneas and a home video compilation.
Eilish finished one of her numbers, cried out, then laughed and explained, “Guys, I just ate shit up here.
“It was dark, it was pitch black (and) I tripped over the damn fire thing. ow!
“I went… and fell right on my face.”
Fans were treated to a string of hits including Bury A Friend, Oxytocin, Bad Guy and Happier Than Ever.
A compilation of baby videos, including clips of Eilish playing with her brother and parents, accompanied Getting Older.
While performing her song Ocean Eyes, which she wrote when she was just 13, Eilish was lifted 20 feet in the air on a mechanical platform and soared above the crowd as she sang.
She also brought out Paramore singer Hayley Williams as a surprise guest for a rendition of Misery Business and later helped close the set.
