Maya Rudolph Channels Madonna, Beyonce in Musical Monologue

Maya Rudolph has officially achieved “Mother” status on Saturday Night Live.

During her opening monologue on the Mother’s Day episode on May 11, the former SNL cast member gave a show-stopping musical performance that channeled Madonna‘s hit song “Vogue” and Beyonce‘s Renaissance aesthetics.

The glitzy monologue opened with the actress-comedian mentioning to the audience that she’s a four-time mother. SNL cast member Bowen Yang quickly chimed in to remind her, “But Maya, look — you’re not just a mom. You’re Mother,” adding, “You were the first to slay the house down boots, queen!”

Rudolph takes a liking to the new title and celebrates with a throbbing dance number while sporting a reflective black bodysuit and strutting through Studio 8H — aka the “House of Rockefeller” — surrounded by elaborately dressed backup dancers.

“I’m your mother/ I’m your mother,” she repeats in a Madonna-esque fashion. “I’m your… Oops, I’ve made you dance/ Remember that movie when I pooped my pants?/ When you were a baby, you pooped your pants and I changed your diaper/ I’m your mother.”

SNL‘s Chloe Fineman and her adorable dog interrupt the party by asking Rudolph if “dog moms” should also be honored on Mother’s Day. “What about them?” she replies. “And honey, that’s not a dog, that’s a b—-.”

Saturday’s SNL marked Rudolph’s third time hosting the long-running sketch comedy show since leaving the program as a cast member 17 years ago.

Elsewhere during the episode, Rudolph reprised her role as Beyonce for a hilarious parody of the chicken wing-themed YouTube series Hot Ones. In the sketch, a follow-up to her parody from 2021, the comedian dons a cowboy hat and red, white and blue getup similar to the outfit Queen Bey sports on the cover of her latest album, Cowboy Carter, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in early April.
