By Samantha Vincenty

Last week, pop star Dua Lipa lit up Studio 8H as Saturday Night Live's May 4 Host and Musical Guest  Lipa performed "Illusion" and "Happy For You" from her Radical Optimism album and starred in hilarious sketches, including an unexpected tribute to a certain pasta dish.

How to Watch

Watch Saturday Night Live Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock.  

"It is just the most incredible experience I've ever been through. It's just been such a thrilling journey," the "Houdini" singer told WNBC’s Adam Kuperstein as she prepped for the big night.  

Lipa's episode was the first since Ryan Gosling's wildly successful third stint as Host, which featured a sketch so popular, Gosling and Mikey Day resurrected the characters on The Fall Guy premiere's red carpet. All in all, it's been a fantastic 49th season for the long-running sketch show — and there are only two episodes left!

But is there a new SNL this week?
