Hayley Williams made her Coachella debut in a big way over the weekend during Billie Eilish‘s set.

The “bad guy” artist invited the Paramore frontwoman onstage during her set during Coachella’s second weekend this past Saturday.

“It’s my first Coachella, whoa!” Williams said. “Thanks for sharing this with me, this is sick!”

Williams joined Eilish for an acoustic performance of the Paramore classic “Misery Business,” as well as a rendition of Eilish’s “Higher Power.”

Notably, the “Misery Business” performance marks the first time Williams has sang the song publicly since she declared in 2018 that Paramore wouldn’t be playing it for a “really long time.” For the Coachella performance, Eilish handled the controversial line “Once a whore you’re nothing more/I’m sorry, that’ll never change,” though she didn’t sing the word “whore.”

Williams’ surprise appearance follows Eilish inviting Damon Albarn onstage for her weekend-one Coachella set to perform the Gorillaz song “Feel Good Inc.” Albarn himself returned to Coachella for weekend two to guest during electronic artist Flume‘s set. They performed a new song together called “Palaces,” which has since been officially released.
