Ellen DeGeneres Meets Her 'SNL' Impersonator Kate McKinnon

On the latest episode of Ellen DeGeneres' talk show, the comedian met Kate McKinnon, the woman who has been receiving praise for her impression of Ellen on 'Saturday Night Live'.

"It's been such a journey. I'm trying not to cry because I have loved you my whole life, truly," McKinnon said. "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."

"It's like I've met Jesus, if you believe in that sort of thing," she joked. "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."

DeGeneres then asked McKinnon to change out of her blue dress and put on a matching outfit.

"I will treasure this forever," McKinnon joked. "Thank you!"

The jeans had a big hole in them but that didn't stop McKinnon from dancing, stretching and enjoying herself.

"It's time to say goodbye now," McKinnon said. "Be kind to one another. Adios, arrivederci, avocados. I'm vegan. Just kidding! I'm Ellen."
