Carly Rae Jepsen might be hanging with Michael Keaton this weekend on Saturday Night Live but the "I Really Like You" singer ran into an old friend backstage before Saturday night's airing.

Well, kind of.

She actually stumbled across a signed photo of her "I Really Like You" video co-star Tom Hanks while meandering around the halls of the famed SNL studio.

Jepsen will make her SNL debut this week as the show's musical guest. Keaton is tapped to host.

And it turns out you're not the only one excited for Jepsen to perform on the show. Several SNL stars also pledged their allegiance to Jepsen on social media. Yep, they really, really, really like her.
