Dionne Warwick's recent popularity on Twitter was the focus of a hilarious talk show sketch on Saturday Night Live.

Earlier in December, the iconic 79-year-old singer went viral on the social media platform after some memorable exchanges with Chance the Rapper and Taylor Swift.

"If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this," Warwick tweeted at Chance, who joyously replied, "Sorry I am still freaking out that u know who I am. This is amazing!"

On the Dec. 12 episode of SNL, cast member Ego Nwodim portrayed Warwick in a talk show parody, hilariously interviewing such musical artists as Harry Styles (played by the evening's host Timothee Chalamet), Billie Eilish (Melissa Villaseñor) and Machine Gun Kelly (Pete Davidson).

In the nearly six-minute skit, Warwick read off a recent comical tweet to Snoop Dogg ("How do I send a tweet to @SnoopDogg? Did I do this correctly?") before welcoming Styles as her first celebrity guest.

"Maybe you know my song 'Watermelon Sugar,'" Styles explains to Warwick, who then asks the meaning behind the hit single. "I think it's just about summer, but some people think it's about oral sex," Styles explains.

"That's nasty!" Warwick says, to which Chalamet's Styles quickly replies, "No no, on a woman." Warwick excitedly responds, "OK, well now I like your a--."
