Selena Gomez made her Saturday Night Live debut on May 14 and she pulled out all the stops for her charming opening monologue. She even showed off her hilarious and pretty spot-on impression of her long-time friend and pop peer Miley Cyrus.

The singer and actress said she looked to one of her "oldest friends" for advice on hosting the iconic show. Lowering her voice and busting out her best Southern drawl, Selena hilariously impersonated Miley as she shared her advice: "Just be yourself and have fun." Selena then ran her impression of the singer. "I was like, 'Miley, is that just an excuse for me to do an impression of you on the show?' and she was like, 'Hell, yeah. I'm Miley Cyrus.'"

Her monologue covered everything from working with Steve Martin, who made an appearance later in the show, on Hulu's Only Muders in the Building, to her feelings about being single.

"But one reason I'm really excited to host 'SNL' is because I'm single," she revealed. "And I've heard that 'SNL' is a great place to find romance. Emma Stone met her husband here. Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost. Pete [Davidson] and Machine Gun Kelly," she joked.

She went on to say that even though she's looking for love, she doesn't want to try dating apps. "I just want to put it out in the universe that I'm manifesting love and I would like to say that I'm looking for my soulmate, but at this point, I will take anyone." That last part leads into a hilarious bit of cast members shooting their shots at the host.
