“Ladies and gentlemen, ME!” —Lizzo, musical icon and comedy goddess

Lizzo can officially add “comedy genius” to her resume after hosting Saturday Night Live this week.


NBC

She absolutely nailed it on her first time as a host, and she also made history on the show as the first woman to introduce herself as the musical guest.


NBC

Usually, when someone is both the host and the musical guest, they’re introduced by SNL cast members or special guests. Like when Billie Eilish was introduced by her parents!

Billie was the host and musical guest back in Dec. 2021.

And Lizzo did have some help! Her mom was in the audience and introduced her second performance.

Look how proud Lizzo’s mom looks! Adorable.

But there was nobody better than Lizzo herself to introduce her performance of her newest single, “About Damn Time.”


NBC

Is this how I’ll walk into rooms from now on? Maybe.

On Sunday morning, Lizzo confirmed that she was the first host to ever do this.

IM THE FIRST HOST TO EVER INTRODUCE THEMSELVES 😭😭 THANK U LORNE! https://t.co/RzeegIJie2

Fingers crossed that Lizzo comes back to host and perform soon, so she can introduce herself again!


NBC

UPDATE: Lizzo is actually not the first person to introduce herself as the musical guest, but she is the first woman to do it. She tweeted her correction on Sunday afternoon:

Whoops lol they told me I was the first 😭😭😭 first woman then haha it’s all good! https://t.co/BNjcXxSYBm
