Kate McKinnon has quickly become one of the stand-out performers this season on SNL, seamlessly filling the gap left by Kristen Wiig. On the most recent episode, she broke out her hilarious Ellen impersonation, and Ellen herself took notice.
Talking about the impression on her show, Ellen DeGeneres broke down the various elements: her unwavering upbeat vibe, her child guests, and, of course, her incessant dancing.
If you can get a thumbs up from the subject of your mockery, you know you're doing something right. Well done, Kate.
