“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.
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.
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!

But there was nobody better than Lizzo herself to introduce her performance of her newest single, “About Damn Time.”
On Sunday morning, Lizzo confirmed that she was the first host to ever do this.
Fingers crossed that Lizzo comes back to host and perform soon, so she can introduce herself again!
