There are stretches of time where Saturday Night Live forgets the funny.
And there are guest stars who fail to shine, or twinkle before they explode like a supernova the moment they attempt to act.
This is not one of those times.
Ariana Grande nails this skit. Just kills it. I can’t think of another singer who can imitate others so well. Later on, she does a killer Jennifer Lawrence impression.
Well played, Ariana the Grande–come back to SNL and give us more.
Bonus content, if you haven’t seen it: Adam Driver on SNL as Kylo Ren, Undercover Boss.
