Worlds collided on April 24 when Kate, the best Ellen DeGeneres impersonator around, actually met Ellen — and it was amazingly funny. Watch the hilarious video below!

Kate McKinnon’s brightest moment as a cast member on Saturday Night Live has definitely been her impression of Ellen DeGeneres, so when Ellen had Kate on the show on April 24, we all knew something amazing was going to happen.

Kate McKinnon Breaks Out Her Ellen DeGeneres Impression

And we were not disappointed. Ellen, who clearly was not afraid of poking fun at herself, surprised Kate by giving her an identical outfit and begging her to put it on. Kate was totally game, changing out of her sexy dress (“I don’t dress like that too often anymore,” Ellen said) and going full Ellen.

The SNL star came out in the Ellen regalia, dancing (obviously) across the stage as the audience laughed and cheered. She then sat in Ellen’s chair and totally hammed it up. Her chair-squirming seemed to actually out-Ellen Ellen and made her step up her game as a funny talk show host.

“I’m vegan… I’m just kidding, I’m Ellen,” Kate said to huge applause.

Kate really nails Ellen’s quirky personality and her voice (and her penchant for dancing). Everyone must have been hoping that she would do her impersonation on Ellen, so it’s great that Ellen could be a good sport and embrace it all instead of fighting it. She’s obviously no diva, and Kate is just so darn good at the impression that it’s impossible to deny!

This was hilarious and I almost had to do a double take when Kate-as-Ellen and Ellen herself, were both dancing on stage. I was at work at DISH when this aired, but glad I didn’t miss it. I recorded it on my DISH Hopper so when I played it back, while cooking, was able to pause and pick up watching where I left off on any TV in my house. This made my cooking way more fun.
