SENATOR Elizabeth Warren surprised Saturday Night Live audiences with a show cameo and backstage dance clip.
Social media was set abuzz as audiences saw double during last night's cold open.
In a super quick, quick change Kate McKinnon went from playing Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham to Elizabeth Warren.
The real Elizabeth Warren was actually the cold open's final guest.
She told Kate McKinnon who was dressed in the same outfit: "I'm not dead, I'm just in the senate."
Her appearance follows her dropping out of the 2020 Democratic presidential race.
The two ended the sketch with the show's famous opening: "Live from New York, It's Saturday Night."
Elizabeth also said during the opening she was so "proud of our campaign…
"Most notably, not only did I not accept money from billionaires, I got to give one a swirly on live TV."
Kate and Senator Warren also posted a backstage video of the two dancing together in their matching blue jackets.
During the 2016 election, Kate McKinnon portrayed Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
And fans on social media seemed to love the performing pair.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. tweeted: "ok this is legendary."
Other followers wrote: "Kate McKinnon as Laura Ingraham AND Elizabeth Warren WITH the real Elizabeth Warren is everything."
Another added: "Loved this! Kate McKinnon and Elizabeth Warren's cold open was perfection."I'm not DEAD. I'm just in the Senate."
One social media user said: "I might not agree politically, but DAMN it this didn’t make me laugh! Kate McKinnon is too hilarious with her impressions."
Others chimed in: "This is ah-mazing! I [love] @ewarren & Kate McKinnon. And I’ll never hear this song the same way again…"
Another follower said: "America, I still can’t believe you said no to 8 years of watching Kate McKinnon play @ewarren on SNL.
"Guess I’ll just have to watch this clip with the real Elizabeth Warren on repeat forever!"
