Olivia Rodrigo makes debut on Saturday Night Live and it was everything
Olivia Rodrigo performed on the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, cementing her status as one of the biggest pop stars right now.
The actress and singer was first known for starring in the Disney+ series, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, but her flourishing music career has opened the star up to a whole new legion of fans.
The 18-year-old shot to worldwide fame with the release of the single Drivers License in January, which topped the charts in the UK and US.
The singer appeared on the May 15 episode of SNL, just a day after she dropped her new single Good 4 U.
For her first song of the evening, Olivia sang Drivers License, which became popular due to its success on TikTok.
The star performed Good 4 U as her final song, which is the first time it’s been performed on TV.
Good 4 U is the first single from her debut album Sour, which will be released later this month.
Olivia has skyrocketed to fame, and she recently conceded: ‘It would be a bald-faced lie if I say that I didn’t face any misogyny in the music industry — especially being a young girl.’
The musician recently sang Drivers Licence live for the first time when she flew to London to perform at the Brit Awards.
This was also the 18-year-old star’s debut UK performance.
‘I was so nervous rehearsing,’ she admitted. ‘My team were like, “It’s fine, there’s just going to be 45 people,” and I’m like, “Yeah, but the 45 people are Harry Styles and Dua Lipa; that’s so scary!”’
Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays on NBC in the US.
