Kylie Jenner has had a pretty big year, even by Kardashian/Jenner standards. She officially became the world’s youngest “self-made” billionaire; she sold 51% of Kylie Cosmetics to Coty Inc. for $600 million; she split with Travis Scott, the father of her daughter Stormi. But, perhaps most iconically, she created arguably best meme of the year with “Rise and Shine.”
In case you somehow missed it, Jenner went viral (well, more viral than usual) after posting a video tour of her Kylie Cosmetics offices. In one clip, she goes into Stormi’s room and sings “rise and shine” to her daughter. The internet took the moment and ran with it, as the internet does—and it was wonderful. She even trademarked the phrase so that she could turn it into a makeup collection (or more).
So what better way to wrap up the year than to perform that brief tune live at a charity event? Jenner, along with her friends, Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith were in attendance at an art gallery auction (curated by Bieber and his wife, Hailey) to benefit LIFT Los Angeles and Inner-City Arts. Thanks to social media footage, we can see the Biebs—who appears to be wearing a pajama-adjacent outfit—began the musical event with old hits like “Baby.”
He got Smith involved on “Never Say Never.”
But the real moment of the night was when he sang “Rise and Shine,” persuading Jenner to come to the mic.
Based on Bieber and Smith’s reactions in this clip, it was their favorite thing of the night too.
Fans on social media went wild over Jenner’s live debut of the…three words. “The way everyone was silent until Kylie start singing “rise and shine” and then Justin screaming out loud. THIS IS SO FUNNY,” one person wrote on Twitter. “Kylie singing rise and shine and justin and jaden jumping is something i didnt know i need until now,” another wrote.
2019, what a wild ride it’s been.
