We never meant to brag, but only Billie Eilish can make Hayley Williams sing Misery Business after so long.
Just when you thought that Coachella 2022 would run out of surprises, Billie Eilish decided to bring out a very special guest for her second weekend set. All was well. Billie was doing her usual thing, blowing the house down for the crowd. But when someone pulled up two empty chairs to the stage and she took the other, she asked, “Oh, look! An empty seat. Who’s that for?”

It was Paramore front woman Hayley Williams. In. The. Flesh. Of course, the orange hair was brought back to life, too. The best part? Billie Eilish was the only person who was able to make Hayley sing their hit song Misery Business since 2018. She announced it in one of their concerts that it was the last time the band was going to perform it due to the fact that it had slut-shaming lyrics.
Can we also talk about how it was Hayley Williams’ first Coachella performance ever? An absolute crime knowing how she’s one of the most brilliant performers with an explosive stage presence even after all these years. Remember when we used to head bang to all of Paramore’s songs all the way back in 2006?
The duo also performed Billie Eilish’s song, Happier Than Ever at Coachella 2022 and the only thought in our heads right now is how Hayley Williams has not aged a day? It’s the crossover we didn’t realized we needed—a lifestyle, a cultural reset. That’s what you get when you stan women who support other women.
