NEWJEANS have shared a photo of themselves meeting up with singer-songwriter Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell at Lollapalooza.
The images were shared on NEWJEANS social media account following their successful international performance debut at the Chicago event earlier today.
They also commented on their own post with: “BILLIE JEANS”, along with a GIF of Michael Jackson performing the Moonwalk.
In the first photo, NEWJEANS members Hanni, Danielle, Minji, Haerin and Hyein are excitedly posing with Billie Eilish. The girls are known to be devoted fans of the US musician, and consider her their personal inspiration.
In an earlier interview with NME, they said that they prepared for their performances by watching her music videos. They also stated that she is their dream performer to headline a music festival.
NEWJEANS also shared a photo of themselves with Billie Eilish’s brother and music partner Finneas O’Connell. They even gave him a special gift to commemorate the occasion.
The pink and white box held by Finneas features signatures from all five NEWJEANS members, with a message reading: “We love your work! We are such huge fans and know that we are always cheering for you!! Thank you so much.”
Considering that NEWJEANS are such huge fans of Billie Eilish, it is highly likely that she would have also received a similar gift from them.
Fans are thrilled that NEWJEANS were able to meet their favorite idol, with many jokingly asking about when they could expect them to release a collaboration.
