For more than a year, Saturday Night Live's Ego Nwodim has brought a killer impersonation of Dionne Warwick to the comedy series, as the confident, digressive host of her own talk show. The show's most recent installment of that fictitious program may have been its best yet - and had fans of Dionne seeing double!

After welcoming a host of singers including Miley Cyrus (Chloe Fineman), Jason Mraz (guest host Kieran Culkin), Post Malone (Pete Davidson) and even the night's musical guest Ed Sheeran, Nwodim as Warwick welcomed the real 80-year-old legend to the stage, to the rapturous applause of the live audience. As you'll see in the clip below, Warwick is as funny as her offbeat Twitter account would have you imagine - and the rendition of "What the World Needs Now" that Nwodim and Warwick end the sketch with will make your day.

Check out the full segment below.
