Back in 2020, Reneé Rapp tweeted that she wanted to host and perform on Saturday Night Live. This weekend, half of her manifestations came true, as she bagged the musical guest role while Saltburn's Jacob Elordi made his hosting debut.
The Mean Girls star most definitely didn't disappoint, and faultlessly performed her track 'Snow Angel,' before being joined on stage by Megan Thee Stallion for a surprise rendition of their soundtrack song, 'Not My Fault.' Which, by the way, was introduced by none other than Rachel McAdams, who originally played The Plastics leader, Regina George in the 2004 film.
Iconic moments aside - and with Rachel officially passing the Burn Book baton to Reneé - the 24-year-old experienced a slight wardrobe mishap during 'Not My Fault.' But of course, being Ms Reneé Rapp, she handled the malfunction expertly. Agh, a *true* performer!
To unpack, as Reneé and Megan Thee Stallion were slaying the choreography, the Broadway star suddenly turned her back to the audience to adjust her jacket back over her bikini top.
As Megan continued to rap, Reneé turned around to face the crowd again and seamlessly slipped right back into the dance routine. The entire mishap took place in literally a matter of seconds, and neither missed a beat. To be honest, it all happened so smoothly that you probably didn't even notice in the first place.
The subtlety of the situation was probably why Twitter barely mentioned the incident, and instead gushed over the iconic SNL lineup.
"They really got Jacob Elordi, Reneé Rapp, Rachel McAdams, & Megan Thee Stallion in one room ohhh they ate with this one #snl," one viewer shared, as another typed: "Rachel McAdams introducing Reneé Rapp and Megan joining her to perform.. oh this SNL was for the GIRLS."
Elsewhere, a third added: "INSTANTLY one of the best SNL performances of ALL TIME like Reneé Rapp the mother that you are!" while a fourth said: "Reneé Rapp and Megan Thee Stallion absolutely owned the SNL stage."
