Halsey Totally Blew People Away By Painting An Incredible Self-Portrait While Singing On SNL

In case you don't know by now, Halsey is a renaissance artist.

She stunned Saturday Night Live audiences as both host and musical guest, an impressive feat very few have achieved. Donald Glover did it last spring and Paul Simon pulled duty back in 1975.

Not only is Halsey — whose real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane — a renowned singer and songwriter, but the 24-year-old wields a paintbrush as deftly as the microphone.

Studio audiences witnessed the multitasker working her magic as she sang "Eastside" for her second set of the night.


Halsey painted a self-portrait upside-down across the makeshift canvas floor. It was a groundbreaking performance that will probably never be attempted by another SNL host again.

People can't stop talking about her performance that ranked among the season's best, so far.









She made quite an impression on the uninitiated.





Flashy backup dancers are fierce and all, but her solo, a transformative performance, set the bar high for future SNL hosts.




Standing on the SNL stage was a dream come true moment for Halsey. In her opening monologue, she talked about how much she loved watching the show as a kid and "especially admired" the women cast members who "never cared what they looked like, what they sounded like or what anybody thought of them. They were just funny."

Now she's the one inspiring others with her legendary performance.

So, when is she coming back to SNL for round two?
