Selena Gomez did a hilariously accurate impression of Miley Cyrus while hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’

On May 14, Selena Gomez stepped up to the challenge and honor of hosting Saturday Night Live. This marked the Wizards of Waverly Place star’s first time hosting SNL, but she has appeared as the musical guest in the past. 

During her opening monologue, Gomez delighted the crowd with an extended riff on her dating life, in which several cast members tried to shoot their shot with the former Disney star. She even got the audience to sing along to the “I Love You” song from Barney & Friends with her. 

But there was one moment from Gomez’s monologue that fans can’t stop talking about – her spot-on impression of her fellow actor and musician, Miley Cyrus.

Gomez set up the viral moment by revealing that she had reached out to her friend for advice about hosting the show. Cyrus is very familiar with the SNL stage, having served as both the host and the musical guest multiple times. 

“I also asked one of my oldest friends, Miley Cyrus, and she said, ‘Just be yourself and have fun,’” Gomez said, dropping her voice to Cryus’ signature low drawl. “And I was, like, ‘Miley, is that just an excuse for me to do an impression of you on the show?’ And she was, like, ‘Hell yeah, I’m Miley Cyrus.’”

It looks like Miley Cyrus took Selena Gomez’s SNL impression of her in stride. On May 17, Cyrus responded to the monologue moment in an Instagram post. 

She shared two photos of herself in bed holding a cup of tea. The tattooed singer wore a white tank top with the words “Hell Yeah I’m Miley Cyrus” drawn on in black ink. In the third slide of her post, Cyrus added a video clip of Gomez’s impersonation on Saturday Night Live.

“HELL YEAH I’M MILEY CYRUS 🫖 @selenagomez @nbcsnl,” she wrote in the caption.

Fans loved the ‘Midnight Sky’ singer’s response

Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez fans adored the “Wrecking Ball” singer’s post, and they sounded off in the comments section. Many of them acknowledged the Disney connection between the two stars, and some begged for a collaboration. 

One fan wrote, “Queens of disney 💅” while another pleaded, “Queeensssss please do a song together😍”

Several fans complimented Cyrus and Gomez’s long-standing bond with comments like, “I’m in love with your friendship.”

Others encouraged the musician to sell the tank top or replicas of it. “You should auction off that shirt,” said one fan, while another wrote, “I want this in merch.”
