Halsey had her hands full on last night’s Saturday Night Live (Feb. 9), performing “Without Me” and “Eastside” as musical guest in addition to serving as the episode’s host.
She kicked things off with her monologue, where she joked that Halsey is “actually short for Halsey and Oates-y” and noted how growing up, she always admired the women of SNL. “They never cared what they looked like, what they sounded like or what anybody thought of them,” she said. “They were just funny.”
Later in the episode, she teamed up with some of those funny women for “Valentine’s Day Song.” The sketch, with Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon, is a ’90s R&B ode to the awkward Valentine’s Day gestures from parents and other platonic acquaintances. “We’re not close/ Colleen, do less,” Halsey sings as she gets a massive pink teddy bear from her boss.
She also appeared in a sketch that parodied the recent blackface scandals in Virginia, and impersonated Rep. Rashida Tlaib in “Women of Congress,” a Charlie’s Angels spoof featuring the women of Congress reacting to a message from Donald Trump.
Halsey also teamed up with Beck Bennett to play Mikey Day’s parents in a sketch that anyone whose older relatives have ever been cagey about their health can relate to.
Check out that sketch, along with all the other highlights from Halsey’s SNL episode, below.
