    Lizzo's "Saturday Night Live" Performance Was Super Black, And I Still Haven't Gotten My Edges Back

    Honey, Lizzo slayed!

    Lizzo hit the stage for Saturday Night Live this weekend. Of course we knew she would bring the vocals, but honey, she brought the fire outfits, too!

    For the night, Lizzo wore a Dapper Dan x Gucci button-down trench coat and a matching bralette. Her backup dancers, all beautiful black women of all sizes, wore Dapper Dan brown jumpsuits.

    I was so happy to see her in all her fullness embracing those curves in designer! And black designer too? Yes!

    Twitter is excited because the queen brought an all-black women band and dancers:

    As much credit and acclaim as Lizzo gets she deserves more. All Black woman band and dancers. THROWING DOWN! Soooooo good! I'm about to go wake up my daughters so they can see this.

    We are obsessed with this custom Gucci look:

    Umm Lizzo and her dancers on SNL in custom Gucci I’m πŸ˜­πŸ™πŸ½

    In fact, Lizzo and her band had us actually watching through the entire show. We want more:

    Lizzo plus her crack, all-sister backing band equals the first time I've watched a musical act through an entire song on #SNL in forever. She is 100 percent an amazing performer.

    And to see this type of representation is what the world needs:

    Lizzo has big Black women as her background dancers, AND as her band. This is some historic shit!!!! πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ #SNL

    Keep stepping on necks, Lizzo!
