LOS ANGELES, Dec 10: Olivia Rodrigo returned to the iconic Saturday Night Live stage, injecting a fresh twist into two of her chart-topping hits during her second appearance as the musical guest, joining host Adam Driver. The 20-year-old songstress showcased reinterpretations of “Vampire” and “All-American ..,” to the delight of her fans.

Kicking off the evening with a slow, piano-driven version of “Vampire,” Rodrigo donned a dazzling silver halter dress, elegantly styling her hair in a sleek bun. Infusing emotional depth into the melody, she wore rings on her right-hand spelling out “Guts,” a nod to her second studio album. The dreamlike stage was bathed in blue fog, with silver stars suspended from above, creating a captivating atmosphere.

Transitioning to her performance of “All-American …,” Rodrigo brought theatrical flair to the stage. Initially seated behind a table adorned with cakes and treats in a demure high-neck pink dress, she transformed the ambiance during the chorus. Displaying her darker side, she leaped onto the table, slashing cakes with a knife, and danced amidst the confectionaries as the lighting intensified with quick red flashes, mirroring her evolving mood.

In a symbolic gesture, Rodrigo smeared blood-red cake on her face, dress, and white stockings, possibly alluding to the thematic “guts” of her album. Concluding her dynamic performances, she playfully stuck her tongue out at the cameras, leaving a lasting impression.

Having made her SNL debut in 2021 with renditions of “Driver’s License” and “Good 4 U,” Rodrigo expressed gratitude on social media, calling the experience the “most nerve-wracking/emotional/happy” of her life. Reflecting on her previous appearance, where a Bridgerton skit aired on her birthday, she reminisced about the “best birthday present ever.”

Recently nominated for six Grammy Awards, Rodrigo shared her appreciation for the recognition during an exclusive interview with People at the Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes premiere in Los Angeles. Describing it as an “insane” honor, she expressed deep gratitude for the acknowledgment from the music community.
