King Princess made her Saturday Night Live debut on Nov. 23 with performances of songs from her new album, Cheap Queen.

The New York native, whose real name is Mikaela Straus, wowed the Studio 8H audience and TV viewers alike with gorgeous deliveries of "Hit the Back" and "1950." Watch the performances below.

The latest SNL episode was hosted by veteran comedian Will Ferrell, who enjoyed his fifth time hosting the show after working as a cast member between 1995 and 2002.

Earlier in the month, King Princess made her U.S. television debut on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Her debut album, Cheap Queen, arrived in late October.

King Princess will be playing U.S. theaters from January through February before heading to South America in March for a string of Lollapalooza festival dates. In the spring, she'll support Harry Styles on a run of European shows.
