Reneé Rapp’s Saturday Night Live performance had an unexpected twist with the surprise appearance of Rachel McAdams, the original Regina George from Mean Girls.
McAdams, now 45, introduced Rapp, 24, who portrays Regina George in this year’s musical remake of the iconic film.
McAdams, dressed in a red pant suit, delighted the audience with her cameo, leading to Rapp’s impressive performances of “Not My Fault” and “Snow Angel” alongside Megan Thee Stallion.
McAdams also showcased her comedic skills in a sketch playing an actress named Natalie Partman on OnlyFans, seeking career advice from host Jacob Elordi.
Following the show, Megan, who refers to herself as the “Black Regina George,” shared a playful Instagram post recreating the famous Spiderman pointing meme with McAdams and Rapp.
In a promo video ahead of the show, Rapp, Elordi, and Bowen Yang had a light-hearted exchange, with Rapp referring to Elordi as “babygirl” and herself as “mother.”
The announcement of Elordi and Megan as host and musical guest was met with excitement from stars like Rachel Zegler and Busy Philipps.
This surprise SNL moment came after Rapp expressed admiration for her character in an exclusive chat with PEOPLE, praising the determination of Regina George.
