We can count on Olivia Rodrigo to give it her all every time she hits the stage, but she managed to exceed our wildest expectations on Saturday Night Live. Her second SNL performance was one for the books, and she delivered a true tour de force with amazing renditions of her hits “Vampire” and “All-American B—h”.

Rodrigo made her SNL debut in 2021 when she was riding on the coattails of her debut album Soar. The 20-year-old singer repeatedly said that its follow-up Guts was written with a tour in mind, and judging by her SNL performance—epic things will happen once she finally hits the road.

Rodrigo kicked off her performance with the stripped-down version of the chart-topping single “Vampire”. She set behind a piano in a dazzling silver dress for a powerful rendition of this soaring ballad, and let her vocals shine with no background singers or other instruments to support her.

Just when we thought her second performance couldn’t possibly be any better, Rodrigo delivered a masterclass in female rage with the theatrical rendition of “All-American B—h”. From dramatically stabbing a cake and smearing it all over her face to chaotically dancing on a dinner table, she did a great job capturing the edgy energy of this pop-punk anthem and made us fall in love with it all over again.
