Dua Lipa finally appears on ‘Saturday Night Live’ after her last performance was dropped due to Coronavirus outbreak. She performed the song ‘Don’t Start Now’ in a Sexy Leopard Dress and it’s too hot to handle.
In the U.K. On the Dec. 19 episode hosted by former cast member Kristen Wiig, 47, the local starred for the second time on the NBC series, acting. She channeled Kylie Jenner, 23, in a super sexy leopard print bustier (reminiscent of Kylie’s look in Cardi B and Megan Thy Stallion’s “WAP” video) for her first appearance, as she kept her dark hair in a 1940’s influenced hairstyle. Dua sang her big hit “Don’t Start Now.” As she belted out the catchy chorus and bridge, Dua and her dancers turned the floor into a ’70s nightclub.

“If you don’t want to see me dance with someone,” she croons to the melody of a lover. Don’t turn up, don’t come out do not show up. She sings defiantly over the disco-inspired tune that got us jumping right from our living room sofa, “Don’t start caring about me now/Walk away, you know how/Don’t start caring about me now.” With black tights and a chunky gold chain necklace that seemed to contain a large central diamond, the actress completed her outfit.
Dua looked angelic with a dramatic ostrich feather headpiece and a plunging, sheer white dress for her next appearance. Vibes from Marilyn Monroe, anybody? “As her dancers sparkled in black sequin turtlenecks, the singer belted out the lyrics of her spring hit “Levitating”. Under the blue tinged sun, the stage at studio 8H seemed entirely different, with numerous lighting set up behind and on the walls of the stage. She crooned as she swayed along to the club-ready rhythm, “Come and dance with me/I’m levitating… Baby let me take you on a ride.”
The One Kiss” songstress was initially supposed to perform on the episode of March 28 that was postponed once shutdowns began the same month with COVID-19. However, Dua has previously starred on the programme, making her debut in a Feb. 2018 episode hosted by Natalie Portman. “From her self-titled debut studio album, she played the songs “New Laws” and “Homesick.
At the time, the up-and-coming star also sat down to answer pressing fan questions, like what it was like stepping into the legendary Studio 8H, for a behind-the-scenes video. “Absolutely anxious. He was really pleased. I was pretty much just rushing into the studio, hopping on the stage and weeping at myself, pretty much,’ she admitted. SNL has long been considered a career achievement for many artists, raising their profiles in the North American industry in some instances, such as Adele.
Dua Lipa is currently dating Gigi Hadid’s younger brother Anwar. On November 24, Dua learnt she was nominated for 6 GRAMMY Awards. She took it to twitter and wrote an emotional note:

Also recently, the 25-year-old partnered with superstar Miley Cyrus, 27. Recently, the ladies revisited their super hot “Prisoner” single, which is a song from the Plastic Hearts album by Miley. For the song, which was influenced by the ’80’s glam rock era, Miley and Dua got sweaty, heavy and bloody.
