Jennifer Graham Kizer - iVillage
If you’re a fan of Kate McKinnon’s impression ofEllen DeGeneres onSaturday Night Live — and boy, is it spot on! — then you’ll love this. On yesterday’s Ellen, McKinnon gamely accepted DeGeneres’ offer to impersonate her right there on the show. Watch below, as the jaunty pair squirm in their seats and dance through the audience together.
At first, DeGeneres appeared a bit shy when facing her twin. Then again, she may have simply been scaling back her signature exuberance, giving McKinnon a chance to really ham it up. It’s hard to say which was better — seeing how good McKinnon’s Ellen impression really is, or watching her genuine delight in meeting the woman she spoofs. We give this celebrity-meets-impersonator showdown a 5 out of 5.
But Ellen isn’t the only celebrity who has come face-to-face with her Saturday Night Live doppelganger. Here we rate six other meetings between stars and the SNL cast members who impersonate them:
