Grimes joined her partner Elon Musk on Saturday Night Live, impersonating the video game character Princess Peach.

The Canadian singer-songwriter, who has been in a relationship with the Tesla CEO since 2018, had teased her cameo ahead of the broadcast in an Instagram post.

She finally appeared in a skit taking the form of a fake courtroom drama, in which Peach was accused of having an affair with Luigi by Wario – played by Musk.

Her performance received overall positive reactions on Twitter, where people praised the skit as one of the better parts of the episode.

Earlier on Saturday, Grimes shared three futuristic photos on Instagram, writing as part of a lengthy caption: “Tune into SNL tonight to watch me try acting!”

Saturday’s episode marked Musk’s first time hosting the iconic comedy show. In his opening monologue, he said he was the first person with Asperger’s syndrome to ever host the programme. He also poked fun at the pronunciation of his child’s unusual name. He and Grimes welcomed their son X Æ A-Xii in May last year.

NBC, which airs SNL in the US, exceptionally enabled international viewers to stream the show live on YouTube for the duration of the broadcast.
