Watch Melissa Villaseñor’s Hilarious Impression of Dolly Parton on “Saturday Night Live”

Everyone loves Dolly Parton! Everyone, including Saturday Night Live cast member Melissa Villaseñor.

Melissa broke out her Dolly impression during SNL‘s “Weekend Update” segment on Dec. 12. Dressed as Dolly, Melissa treated viewers to a few of her favorite holiday songs, including “Holly Jolly Christmas,” a mashup of “Jingle Bells” and “Jolene,” and “9 to 5.”

“Yeah, fine, news flash, I want to be Dolly,” says Melissa. “Who doesn’t? She’s the coolest. She’s a great singer, she writes her own songs, she donated a million dollars to the vaccine. Plus, there was a news story this week that she saved a kid from getting hit by a car, which made me mad, because I was speeding up to hit him—I’m kidding. Alright, look, I’ll sing you one actual Christmas song, a real one this time, okay?”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
