This weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live was definitely one to remember. Along with host Timothee Chalamet and musical guest Bruce Springsteen, the episode included sketches pertaining to SoundCloud rappers, Harry Styles and even Machine Gun Kelly.
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.

Along with MGK himself, the internet also has a lot of thoughts about Davidson’s portrayal of the Tickets To My Downfall performer.

In other Machine Gun Kelly news, it turns out that Carrie Underwood is a big fan of Tickets To My Downfall. As well, MGK recently teamed up (again) with YUNGBLUD and Travis Barker on the new song “acting like that.” The song appears on YUNGBLUD’s new album Weird! which debuted on Dec. 4.
