During the Dionne Warwick Talk Show sketch, the talk show host, played by Ego Nwodim, struggles to remember the names of her celebrity guests. The sketch includes impersonations of Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and, of course, Davidson as Machine Gun Kelly.

The comedian emerges on-screen in MGK’s iconic hot pink look from the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards. Along with blonde hair and MGK’s signature pearl necklace, Davidson incorporates Machine Gun Kelly’s voice and mannerisms in the Saturday Night Live sketch.

Now, Machine Gun Kelly has revealed exactly what he thinks of Davidson’s impersonation. On Dec. 13, he took to Twitter to say that Davidson was pretty much spot on.
