Billie Eilish has appeared on the latest episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! where she took part in a sketch to tick off a number of her childhood “bucket list” moments.

“You made a bucket list when you were twelve-years-old, this is real,” Kimmel said in front of Eilish, as he read off several items from her list which he showed to the audience.

“Let me just run through he said,” as he read from the list which included things such as meeting Justin Bieber (which the musician has now achieved), owning a mouse, getting thrown out of a Target store and punching someone.

Later in the show, Kimmel allowed Eilish to punch him to enable her to tick off one of her moments.”I think you should punch me because I’m probably the strongest person here,” Kimmel joked. He added: “Don’t hold back, just go ahead. I’m like a seal…hit me as hard as you want in the stomach.”

Eilish dually obliged, punching Kimmel in the stomach and causing him to lose his footing. Moments later, the set turned into a Target store that Kimmel jokingly has her thrown out of, therefore enabling Eilish achieve two of her bucket-list entries at once.

“Let’s get them checked off,” Kimmel said of the bucket list items. Another item on the list was Eilish wanting to cut a person’s hair. A fan from the audience volunteered to which Eilish said: “Okay, first of all do you give your consent to do this because I’m going to do a bad job on purpose and you’re going to have to deal with it.”

The fan replied “Hell yes,” before Eilish chopped a chunk of her hair away to audience cheers.

Earlier this month, Eilish was confirmed as Glastonbury‘s youngest ever solo headliner.

The singer will top the Pyramid Stage bill on Friday June 24 2022, only three years after her debut performance at the event.

“We are very excited to confirm that @billieeilish will headline the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night at Glastonbury 2022, to become the Festival’s youngest ever solo headliner. This will be her first UK festival headline performance,” wrote Glastonbury organisers.

Confirmation of the performance comes hours after the singer wore a Glastonbury hoodie in a photo posted to her Instagram account, captioning the snap “2022”.
