Is it just us, or is the only thing worse than watching Ellen DeGeneres seeing two of her?  Kate McKinnon, the popular Saturday Night Live, cast member was a guest on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday.

McKinnon confessed that she’s a huge fan of DeGeneres.  McKinnon added, "It's like I've met Jesus, if you believe in that sort of thing. I've arrived at the gates and here you are."

"I hope I don't disappoint you," DeGeneres quipped. "That's a lot of pressure for me."

Ellen DeGeneres then asked her to switch out of the blue dress she wore for the show and switch into a matching outfit and perform her popular impersonation of the famous talk show host. 

McKinnon added, "It's like I've met Jesus, if you believe in that sort of thing. I've arrived at the gates and here you are."
"I hope I don't disappoint you," DeGeneres quipped. "That's a lot of pressure for me."


"It's been such a journey. I'm trying not to cry because I have loved you my whole life, truly," McKinnon, 29, told DeGeneres, 55, according to usmagazine.com. "My mother has come up with schemes to try to meet you. I used to paint, I was an oil painter, and she would always say, 'If you would just paint a portrait of Ellen and send it to her, I'm sure that she would have you as a guest on the show. I don't know why you don't just paint a portrait.' I never did and I don't know why. I guess it's because I was meant to appear in a different capacity on the show."

The SNL star came out in her Ellen outfit, dancing, in typical Ellen fashion, across the stage.  She then sat in Ellen’s chair and so impersonated Ellen that even Ellen DeGeneres was feeling the heat to step up her game as a funny talk show host. 

“I’m vegan… I’m just kidding, I’m Ellen,” Kate joked to a huge applause from the audience, according to hollywoodlife.com. 

Kate McKinnon has been known in recent years for her right-on impersonations of Ellen DeGeneres, but this newest rendition, actually on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, brings her to a whole new level.  The performance was good, but who really needs to watch Ellen DeGeneres with double vision?  What did you think of her performance?
