Before a celebrity enters the spotlight, they're just like every other human. That means just as their fans look up to them, they probably had stars that inspired them in life. There's one artist topping the charts right now that looked towards Canada when searching for her idol. Billie Eilish is obsessed with Justin Bieber and was so nervous the first time she met him. 

The "Bad Guy" singer got her turn to be on the infamous Carpool Karaoke segment hosted by James Corden, where she got down to earth on her journey to fame including how much of an impact Justin Bieber had on her growing up. 

In between singing hit songs like "Ocean Eyes" and playing The Beatles' tunes on a ukulele, the Peter Rabbit star also asked Eilish to discuss her first meeting with Bieber. 

The introduction happened at the iconic Coachella music festival in California where Eilish explained that she had known the Canadian singer was going to be there and had been begging friends not to surprise her with his appearance, "I can't take it. I can't take it. I can't…have to do this show and Justin Bieber's going to be there."

During Ariana Grande's performance is when she spotted him in the crowd saying, "I was just standing there…and I saw…I know his body language, I know how he stands, I know where he wears his pants..."

After recognizing him, the LA artist revealed that "He just stood there. He didn't even come near me. He just stood, like, five feet away from me, perfectly still." 

The moment was even captured on video. 

To confirm that Eilish was in fact as big of a Bieber fan as she claimed, Corden got her to rap Ludacris' part in the Canadians hit song "Baby." 

She sang it word for word.
