Billie's Haunting Nightmare Before Christmas Cover Will Give You Chills
It's such a perfect song for her.
It was “simply meant to be.” Billie Eilish just made Halloween even better by headlining The Nightmare Before Christmas live-to-film concert on Friday, Oct. 29. Joining the event at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, the singer celebrated the iconic film alongside Danny Elfman. To get yourself even more hype for Halloween, you need to watch Billie Eilish sing “Sally’s Song” from The Nightmare Before Christmas ASAP.
At the concert, Eilish appeared in Sally’s stitched dress, complete with strategic stitches drawn onto her neck and arms. The Happier Than Ever singer took the stage to sing “Sally’s Song,” the moment in the Tim Burton movie when the heroine expresses her hope for Jack Skellington’s safety and laments about her feelings, which she feels may never be reciprocated.
Eilish also joined Elfman, who wrote the songs for the 1993 film and also sang the part of Skellington for the sweet duet “Simply Meant To Be.” Right before the concert, Eilish shared a photo of her name billing on what appears to be her personal dressing room. “Peeing my pants i’m so excited,” she wrote.

On Oct. 23, Eilish posted a picture of herself posing with costumed actors on Instagram, writing, “THANK YOU @horrornights @unistudios #universalhhn we had a blast.”
The singer is basking in her latest slew of accomplishments, and aside from kicking serious butt singing “Sally’s Song,” she’s got an official perfume in the works and released her second studio album, Happier Than Ever, on July 30, 2021.
