Arianna DeBose slayed her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live!
During her Saturday Night Live hosting debut, the 30-year-old actress wowed the audience with a night packed with hilarity and good times.
DeBose began the show with an introductory speech that paid tribute to her heritage.
She said, ''It is great to be here representing not only the Latino community as an Afro-Latina, but also the Broadway community."
The actress subsequently took on the persona of Anita from West Side Story.
Additionally, she sang "Tonight" and "I Feel Pretty" with Kate McKinnon in the film.
Later in the episode, DeBose performed with the SNL cast in a number of sketches, including a halftime show for the NBA on TNT show, which they did together.
Maria (McKinnon) is "stretched rather thin" in another piece when DeBose parodies the Sound of Music.
When the omicron variant spread, SNL had a quieter show at the end of 2021, but now it has a bigger show.
NBC broadcasts a new episode of Saturday Night Live each week.
