Billie Eilish used TikTok Fan Spotlight, and now all musicians can

Billie Eilish was the first to use TikTok’s new free ‘Fan Spotlight’ feature, and now every musician can.

Fan Spotlight enables musicians to pin up to five fan-created videos to the top of the music tab in their TikTok profiles. The videos stay pinned for seven days, after which five more fan clips can be featured.

If the musician chooses a video as a ‘Fan Spotlight, ‘ the fan receives a notification. 

User-generated content can have problems, but by letting musicians curate it, TikTok neutralizes most of the potential negatives.


Hey artists 🌟 Fan Spotlight is here! Pin your favorite fan videos and refresh your TikTok profile easily in just 3 clicks! Let your fans know you're vibing with their content ❤️
