I wonder how the BBC are going to try and big this up?

 

Mining half the songs.

Some of the cringiest crowd work I've seen. I know she's probably not done as much live work as she's wanted but crikey.

 

It also highlights a big issue with the streaming era pop she sort of belongs too. It's meant to background music, Glasto are going to have to put more effort into working out who'll be good live. Sam Fender was way better than this.

Sam Fender isnt anywhere near as big as Billie. He isnt int he same stratosphere...thats your problem there.

 

She isnt miming either. She's doing absolutely fine.

Absolutely! Other half told me to turn it down, he can fuck right off 🤣

I've stuck the headphones on so it's a bit louder through them, even though I hate wearing them.

They sound great - shame my TV i-player isn't working - the walls of my flat would be shaking now if it was! 😄

But he's a better live act which kind of be the point of a live music festival. Glasto in the 90s and 00s often booked big UK acts who were better live over bigger American pop acts. 

 

Oh sorry not miming just  sticking her mic in the air while her vocals play. I could honestly fall asleep to this.

You realize Billie was touring 3 years straight before covid hit and had a whole u.s arena and europe tour ready to go that was sold out? She grinded  it out. She didnt have it as easy as Olivia did with barely getting one tour and then boom, big stages. She had done plenty of festivals but man for every old fucking sod that cant just let the kid do what she is doing and is fucking scared shitless about the future of music. Also, maybe thank Doja Cat for ruining her throat or else there would be endless posts about miming and such for the last 3 hours

This, so much this! Without wanting to be "it was better back in the day", this was it. Were you actually any good? not how many record or singles you had.

You cannot tell me Foals shouldn’t be headlining the pyramid stage tonight with this back catalogue, they’ve barely got started and it’s been massive. 

But are Foals big enough to headline? Is the often asked question. 
Yes, is the answer!

I listened to them solidly on Thursday while working (apart from when Spotify went off on its Foals radio tangent!), they've got so much material now, absolutely deserve the Pyramid!

3 years is nothing when you think of how long truly iconic acts rather than flash in pan pop stars tour before headlining festivals like Glasto, Macca has been touring 50 years for crying out loud.

 

If I've reached the point of old sod by my mid-20s that's impressive and it's fair to be worried about the future of pop when it's in the hands of someone like Billie Eilish - I actually like a few of her songs (Bad Guy, Your Power) but this has been dreadful.

Not have a go at you for having an opinion but why are you sticking with it? Switch to Foals. Or Little Simz?

But she is good though. Just because some dont like her doesnt change the fact that this is a solid performance and she more then warrants being where she is.

 

I expect to have this same argument when Harry Styles inevitably headlines next year.

Because I'll always give a headliner 5 or 6 songs to make sure their shit and not just getting over early nerves- gone to Foals.

It hasn’t really been my cup of tea I’ll admit (but then it’s not meant to be, and power to her for looking like she’s having a great time) but that acoustic rendition of ‘Power’ after referencing the absolute disgusting actions of the Supreme Court today was moving

The crowd certainly don’t seem to think “this is dreadful” 😂

Also, there’s never going to be a Glastonbury again where all three Pyramid headliners are men (and rightly so) so we can nip this Foals discussion in the bud right away.
