In case you missed it, Lizzo dominated last night saturday night live, in what was (in our opinion) the best episode of the season so far. Debuting as a host and musical guest, Lizzo’s infectious energy kept the momentum of the episode going and carried over to nearly every sketch. This led to Lizzo, along with the rest of the cast, breaking up throughout the show, much to our delight. Breaking character too often on live TV is generally frowned upon, especially when used as a crutch (we’re looking at you, Fallon), but last night’s laugh was just further proof of the immense Lizzo’s talent as an artist, as well as her chemistry with everyone on stage. Below is a full list of every time Lizzo (or a cast member) broke out last night. SNL.

Lizzo pauses in this skit involving a number of (very real) Black Eyed Peas lyrics around 3:10, 4:00, and 4:30.

Kenan Thompson (usually unbreakable!) is the first to succumb in this skit, especially around 3 and 3:45, in reaction to Lizzo’s incredible performance as the indestructible contestant on the game show Nicole. Lizzo herself breaks at 4:11.

Lizzo pauses in this Six Flags skit at 3:22 and 3:43.

Lizzo takes a break from the Beanie Babies skit in the 2nd minute, in response to Andrew Dismukes describing how he quit his job ‘talking with [his] ass like Jim Carrey does. She also takes a break at 2:22 a.m. and 3:12 a.m., after telling Dismukes, “You’re going to be a dad.” Fair!

Mikey Day is very close to breaking at 2:37 and 3:42 in this excellent sketch featuring Lizzo as a twerking flautist.

Lizzo takes a break at 1:22 in this skit about an ancient Egyptian orgy, once again opposite Andrew Dismukes. Bowen Yang and Cecily Strong, playing the organizers of the orgy, break in big around 3:30. As Kate McKinnon comes out with a live goat, Yang laughs completely through her lines (as it should).
