Critic reviews for Billie Eilish

What a weird Christmas episode it was, which is the best kind of Christmas episode. If Eilish hosts again, it'll be interesting to see what weirdness will come, especially if there's not a holiday to rely on.

[Billie Eilish] has genuine warmth; her little bursts of laughter seem to come from some still spontaneous place within, like her faucets for curiosity and joy are still working.

Billie does a solid job with what she's given. She giggles a couple of times, but it's fun when a host has a good time.

Although Eilish may not be quitting her day job just yet, she pulled off her debut stint as "SNL" host and musical guest with - to use some appropriately lofty critic terms - elan and aplomb.

The double-duty booking might be losing some of its luster through overuse of late, but it's still a hell of an ask for a non-actor, and Eilish did fine.
