The Brief: An image of Billie Eilish's confused face from the 2020 Academy Awards has become a popular reaction meme.
Confused Billie Eilish memes transform a screenshot of the 18-year-old singer making a face at the Oscars into a versatile reaction meme. These memes, which went viral during the 2020 Academy Awards often express WTF-esque reactions and work well with the MFW meme concept.
Eilish’s facial expression was captured by cameras during the song portion of Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph’s comedic awards presentation. While many viewers assumed that her grimace was a response to the intentionally crigney musical number, several Twitter users pointed out that Billie actually appeared to be reacting to seeing her own face onscreen.

This is not the only reaction image to come out of this year’s awards show. Multiple stars’ reactions to Eminem’s surprise performance of “Lose Yourself,” were captured including distinct expressions from Martin Scorcese, Idina Mezel, and Billie Eilish (again).
