On Tuesday Alicia Keys took over James Corden‘s usual duties to play host for the night on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Swapping his usual desk for a piano, Keys brought out fellow American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish to perform an intimate duet of Eilish’s breakthrough hit single, “Ocean Eyes.”

“I mean, I didn’t bring this thing here for nothing,” Keys joked while revealing the instrument, which amped up the studio audience as Eilish perched herself on the arm of the couch. The duo then performed a haunting, acoustic rendition of the track, which left the all-female Stage 56 audience speechless. “I just love everything that you represent,” Keys praised Eilish. “I was so glad that I could take this beautiful gift that you’ve given us, these songs that you’ve given us, this permission you’ve given us to be ourselves and just have a moment.” Following the performance, Eilish surprised Keys with a video of her own cover of one of the host’s early hits, “Fallin’,” which showcases a 12-year-old Eilish singing the song at a school talent show.

Up next, Keys will be hosting the 2020 GRAMMY Awards which airs live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 26 at 5 p.m. PST. Eilish on the other-hand is nominated in the “Big Four” categories: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist. She also recently shared a self-directed music video for “xanny.”
