Saturday Night Live - Season 42

Ariana Grande showed off her skill at doing celebrity impressions for Saturday Night Live viewers on Saturday night, not only mimicking Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, and other singers, but also taking a shot at Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence.

During a special directors versus actors edition of Celebrity Family Feud, Grande as Lawrence presented herself as America’s best friend. “They told me not to do a game show, but I was like, screw it, I’m a regular person,” Grande said.

Joined on the actors panel by Tilda Swinton (Kate McKinnon), Javier Bardem (Beck Bennett), and Idris Elba (a hilarious Jay Pharoah), Grande as Lawrence battled director Quentin Tarantino on the first survey question: “Name a bad habit that you just can’t quit.”

“I’m just like a snackoholic. I love Pringles. If no one is looking, I’ll eat like a whole can. Like, every day is my cheat day,” Grande as Lawrence said after buzzing in to answer. To which Kenan Thompson’s host Steve Harvey replied, “How annoyingly relatable.”

On the other end of the stage, SNL gave its cast members with a chance to spoof the directors. Taran Killam played Tarantino, Bobby Moynihan was Kevin Smith, Kyle Mooney starred as Woody Allen, and Jon Rudnitsky impersonated Martin Scorsese. Or as Thompson called him, the old man from Up.
