Billie Eilish headlined The Forum on Thursday (Dec. 15), and during the show, she invited a familiar face onstage. Eilish had Dave Grohl join her to perform an acoustic duet of Foo Fighters’ “My Hero” to honor late drummer Taylor Hawkins.

The show was part of Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever” tour to promote her 2021 sophomore album of the same title. This isn’t the first time Eilish has paid tribute to the late drummer, as she wore a shirt with Hawkins' picture on it during her Grammy performance earlier this year.

At Thursday’s show, Eilish invited Grohl onstage, and the crowd cheered loudly as he waltzed on. Then, Grohl said, “I have to say, earlier this year all of Foo Fighters and our families gathered together at my house to watch the Grammys and when Billie came out for her performance in a Taylor Hawkins T-shirt, the room was filled with real tears of love and gratitude. From our families who are here tonight — the Hawkins family and everyone would like to thank you very much for that.”

“So, let’s sing it for Taylor,” Grohl added. “This song’s called ‘My Hero,’ it sounds like this…” From there, the two launched into a heartfelt version of “My Hero.”
