The 33-year-old art pop singer appeared in a hilarious sketch alongside her boyfriend and first-time SNL host Elon Musk, whose evil character Wario is on trial for the murdering Super Mario during a go-kart race.
During the skit, Wario’s defense attorney (played by Mikey Day) reveals that Mario’s brother Luigi (Kyle Mooney) was having an affair with Princess Peach. Grimes’ character — who is decked out in a pink dress, long white gloves and a gold crown — denies the salacious claim in a Mario-like accent.
“I a-never touch him under the overalls,” she responds.
Earlier in the day, Grimes teased her SNL cameo on social media. “Tune into SNL tonight to watch me try acting!” the singer wrote at the end of a lengthy caption for a teaser photo posted on Instagram.
The skit concludes with Luigi threatening to throw a turtle shell at Wario, before the trial is interrupted by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (Pete Davidson), who reveals that the sketch was really just a public service announcement for the “Italian-American Anti-Defamation League.”
The latest episode of SNL, with Musk as host and Miley Cyrus as musical guest, was livestreamed internationally for the first time ever. The YouTube stream was available in more than 100 countries around the world.
