Finneas teases Grammys performance with sister Billie Eilish on the red carpet

Finneas O’Connell has praised his sister Billie Eilish for being ‘unflappable’ ahead of her performance at the Grammys.

The pair are among a star-studded lineup of live artists who will take the stage at the 17,000-seat MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Speaking ahead of the show on the red carpet, O’Connell expressed his excitement that the event was being moved to Las Vegas from its usual Los Angeles location due to the pandemic.

He joked: “It’s more sweaty. I mean Las Vegas instead of LA. It’s a bit more sweaty, which I kinda like.

“We’ll see how I feel at the end of the night when I’m shiny and my hair falls in my face.

“But there are so many performances tonight. We rehearsed this morning. I’m so excited to see all these other nominees perform, that’s always what I look forward to at the Grammys, the performances.”

When asked if he was nervous ahead of her performance, O’Connell added, “If it was a solo performance I’d be shaking, but I only play guitar for my sister and I’m really used to that at the moment. I’m just excited.

“She has every right to be, but I bet she isn’t either. Nothing shakes her. She is unshakable. It’s crazy.”

It comes after the siblings won the Oscar for Best Original Song for their Bond theme No Time To Die at the 94th Academy Awards last Sunday.

Lil Nas X, who is nominated for Record of the Year for Montero (Call Me By Your Name), spoke about the impact the song and his queer sexuality had on his life.

On the red carpet, he said: “The song was super important. It was definitely really scary putting it out. But we got through it. We are here right now. I am grateful for the journey it has taken me on.”

The rapper walked the carpet in embroidered and jeweled armor by French fashion house Balmain.

He said: “That’s what we’ve been working on. It’s beautiful, isn’t it? It’s taken a few weeks and some changes, but we’re here.”

Hollywood star Jared Leto said he’s celebrating the box office success of his Marvel Comics film Morbius.

The actor and rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman said on the red carpet: “I’m feeling pretty good. We’re celebrating this weekend because Morbius came out and it’s the number one movie in the world. Pretty funny, quite a nice surprise. We party the way it should be here on the (Las Vegas) Strip. Who knows what will happen.”

Leto, who presented the Best Pop Vocal Album award, added: “It feels great. I’ve been there a few times and it’s always something special – celebrating music and musicians.

“I’ve spent the other half of my life performing on stages around the world with Thirty Seconds To Mars and it’s a beautiful thing to celebrate other artists and be a fan. I am happy to be here.”

Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and Joni Mitchell were among the early winners announced during a pre-show event.

Roots drummer Questlove took the gong for Best Musical Film for his documentary Summer Of Soul, which also won Best Documentary at the Oscars last week.

This award was presented to the team behind the film about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival by comedian Chris Rock shortly after he was slapped by Will Smith for a joke about the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Folk veteran Mitchell won the Grammy for Best Historical Album for the record Joni Mitchell Archives, Volume 1: The Early Years, a five-disc box set.

Comedian Louis CK, whose appearance on the nomination list drew criticism, won Best Comedy Album for his album Sincerely Louis.

He previously admitted that allegations of sexual misconduct by five women against him were true.

Multi-genre performer Batiste has the most nominations with 11 but faces competition from the likes of Justin Bieber, Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo.
