Ahead of the girl in red’s weekend two set, Eilish surprised the singer-songwriter — whose real name is Marie Ulven — with the prestigious Spellemann award. Known as the Norwegian Grammys, Ulven earned the coveted Album Of The Year award for her critically acclaimed debut, If I Could Make It Go Quiet, which she discussed on The FADER Interview podcast earlier this year.
Ulven was also awarded the title of Songwriter Of The Year after earning a record-breaking seven nominations — the most in Spellemannprisen history — including Song Of The Year for her Finneas-produced “Serotonin.” However, the artist wasn’t able to make it to the actual ceremony, which is why Eilish was the one who delivered her statuette.
In a video of the presentation, Ulven can be seen entering a tour bus and is surprised to see Eilish, who then hands her the Spellemann for Album Of The Year.
“What the fuck?!,” Ulven says. “What the actual fuck?! That’s a Norwegian Grammy.”
Eilish, who acknowledged the importance of the honor, then goes on to congratulate a still-shocked Ulven.
“This is so weird!,” she says. “Dude! I did not expect this.”
girl in red is slated to perform at Coachella weekend two later today, while Eilish will close out the festival as the Sunday headliner.
