Testament lead guitarist Alex Skolnick shared a post on his official Twitter page, commenting on Billie Eilish‘s recent performance on SNL of her hit song, ‘Happier Than Ever.’ According to Skolnick, the pop star rocked the stage but repeated herself by singing a song that’s over-performed.
Billie Eilish has been dominating mainstream music with her chart hits since the beginning of her career at the age of 14 with her debut single ‘Ocean Eyes.‘ The singer has been releasing successful singles and albums since then, proving that she’s a force to be reckoned with.
Eilish’s latest song, ‘Happier Than Ever‘ was released as the sixth single of her album of the same name on July 30, 2021. The track was a success as it received four nominations, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards as well as receiving critical acclaim by numerous music critics.
The song was particularly praised for its mid-way transition from an acoustic strummed guitar ballad to an emphasized punk rock-infused ending. The second half of the track showcased the rocker side of Billie, thus, many rock stars commented on the song on their social media accounts.
Since it’s arguably the most liked song on her latest album, Billie Eilish performed ‘Happier Than Ever’ on multiple occasions including her appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and most recently, on Saturday Night Live.
After seeing her performance, Alex Skolnick shared the second half of ‘Happier Than Ever’ on his official Twitter page. According to the rocker, Billie Eilish’s performance was awesome as she rocked the stage. However, she also repeated herself by performing a very popular song. Regardless, Skolnick said he approved this performance.
Skolnick penned in his post:
“Billie Eilish rocks out…Night & day performance from last time on SNL (which was awesome but why repeat yourself). Approved.”
