Kate McKinnon stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday to impersonate Ellen in costume for her audience.
McKinnon, who just quietly celebrated her one-year anniversary as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, danced to Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie,” fidgeted in her chair and mimicked her idol’s voice.
Earlier in the show, McKinnon told DeGeneres that she was a lifelong fan whose mother used to come up with schemes on how they could meet.
“I used to paint. I was an oil painter,” she disclosed. “And she would always say ‘If you would just paint a portrait of Ellen and send it to her, I’m sure that she would have you as a guest on the show.'”
