In a recently released behind-the-scenes video, Eilish reveals the inspiration behind the performance and how she was able to walk on the ceiling.

“It was inspired by the scene from ‘Royal Wedding’ with Fred Astaire where he walks on all the walls and the ceiling,” she said. “Because the camera is attached to the moving room there’s no, like, it’s exactly in synch.”

The “Lovely” singer said that this was the most she has ever rehearsed for a performance, despite nursing an injury.
