Tina Fey as Roberta Turners and Melissa Villaseñor as Susan Turners during "Talent Show" in Studio 8H on May 19, 2018. 

Tina Fey was the host of Saturday night’s SNL season finale, with Nicki Minaj as the musical guest. Even if Minaj took center stage as a performer, Fey had the chance to demonstrate her own singing alongside Melissa Villaseñor in a skit with songs from Cyndi Lauper and System of a Down.    

Playing a mother and daughter in a high school talent show, the two butted heads when covering Lauper’s '80s hit “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” but finally found a way to compromise (sort of) with a brief performance of SoD’s “Chop Suey!”    

Watch the skit below.
