It will be interesting to see if she brings back some of her famous impersonations and characters, or tries all new stuff. Or a little bit of both! We've missed you, Wiig.
Her hosting gig is an awesome excuse to spend a Friday afternoon watching her best moments on SNL. Popcorn at the ready!
Her impersonation of Judy Garland. This is one of those characters that Kristen excels at—totally unhinged, and yet impossibly entertaining to watch.
The Lawrence Welk Show. It's hard to forget the image of Kristen with tiny hands and a freaky hairline. Again, it doesn't make sense and yet you can't stop laughing.
Her Bjork impression. What's awesome about this version of the character is that she's appearing on one of my favorite sketches on the show these days: "Being Quirky with Zooey Deschanel." This one features actual Zooey Deschanel!
The Real Housewives of Disney. This was one of the most genius sketches in recent memory, as it imagined Disney princesses through the dramatic, vapid screen of the Real Housewives franchise. Drunk Kristen/Cinderella is the best.
Her Kathie Lee Gifford impression. This is one of those instances when the person themselves is so strange, the impersonator doesn't have to work very hard to skewer her!
Her Jamie Lee Curtis impression, via a commercial for Activia. Who doesn't like a little scatological humor now and again? You can't resist it. It's okay.
My all-time favorite commercial from SNL, "Almost Pizza." It's such a freaky and hilarious concept, and I love when Kristen fake eats the fake pizza.
