Last year, Ariana Grande brought her A game to Saturday Night Live while pulling double duty as both the show’s regular host and musical guest. As part of her tour de force, Grande served up spot-on impressions of Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Shakira, Rhianna, Celine Dion, and Jennifer Lawrence.

Due to an abundance of strong sketches, SNL was forced to cut one in which Grande plays an office worker hosting a March Madness party, who makes the mistake of inviting JoJo (Kyle Mooney) and BoBo (Beck Bennett).

Incidentally, Keenan Thomas made a cameo in the piece as a coworker who reveals that he’s picked Kansas to win it all. The Jayhawks did manage to make it to the Elite Eight, but were defeated 64-59 by eventual champions Villanova. If the two teams are to meet again in this year’s tournament, it will be in the Final, as both are No. 1 seeds — Kansas in the Midwest, and Villanova in the East.
