It’s evident from the clip that there was a range of reactions visible within the crowd, which was however directed towards Eminem’s rise on the stage.
From a confused Billie Eilish to a befuddled Idina Menzzel. There were many more celebrity reactions, probably the best was of Kelly Marie Tran, who played Rose in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. She’s singing along in the clip, but it’s especially funny to think that she may all of the words of the song from the Star Wars franchise, that ultimately made her famous.
