Olivia Rodrigo conquered the world with her last month Drivers License. The song was at the very top of almost all charts worldwide, and the song is also the creators of Saturday Night Live not escaped notice. Last weekend, on the singer’s eighteenth birthday, Drivers License got his own sketch.
Saturday Night Live often knows how to get the biggest stars to host an episode. That was also the case last Saturday. None other than Bridgertonactor Regé-Jean Page fulfilled that role. And he did that with gusto.
One of the skits in which ‘The Duke of Hastings’ was shown was about the monster hit Drivers License from Olivia Rodrigo. In that sketch is the (male) SNLcast about to start a game of pool. But Regé-Jean Page wants to “play his song first”. He turns to the jukebox and Drivers License blasts through the speakers.
The tough men all immediately become emotional. They pretend they had never heard the song, but they are secretly singing along. Later they also discuss which other artists they are in Drivers License recognize. Is it Billie Eilish vibes? Or is the song more like Taylor Swift’s? According to Regé-Jean Page it is “pure Olivia”.
“Best Birthday Present Ever!”
Oliva Rodrigo, who plays in, among others High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney Channel, the sketch was also shown. It was broadcast last Saturday, and it is now precisely the birthday of the young singer / actress.
She was completely blown away and shared her enthusiasm on Twitter. “The Drivers License SNL-sketch is the best birthday present ever! ”she wrote. “I’m shaking.”
