Chloe Fineman's Britney Spears Impression Caps a Stellar SNL First Year

After a few weeks of SNL at Home—the socially distant version of Saturday Night Live, in which the cast congregates on Zoom instead of at 30 Rock—season 45 newcomer and master impressionist Chloe Fineman has landed on one final impression of the season: Britney Spears.

As part of her Master Class parody, Fineman has provided impressions of “viral loud child” Jojo Siwa teaching TikTok, Timothée Chalamet teaching fashion, and even Phoebe Waller-Bridge teaching journaling.

LONG POST. I am so endlessly grateful for everyone who helped on this @nbcsnl sketch. @graceshaker called with the idea of #snlathome and i sent her a tiktok and she was like “yes keep going”. Then I called @doronmaxhagay and he brilliantly directed me over iCloud footage and taught me to take b-roll, which was it’s own masterclass? Gorgeous work! Thank you to the brilliant @jackklink who then took so much chaotic footage and made this SO fantastic. I adore you. @jasminepierce and i had pitched it earlier this year, and it was so cool to see it come to life. We did it! I love love you! And thanks @andrewdismukes for VO help. And #Higgins for kindly recording said from your home. And thank you @parmajohn_chee for the beautiful Carole Baskins “rap” beat. Special thanks to my boyfriend who lent me his house and watched patiently as a grown woman dressed in Jojo Siwa clothes from Target made maybe 30 tiktoks in his driveway. And shouts to @peels and @neptunesnet for great clothes. Support them! And of course @shartyparty69 for watching clips in Montana and suggesting “French”. And @anniesertich for reminding me this week in her ZOOM class to do JOJO. And @hannahpilkes for endless bff FaceTimes. Love u guys.

But it was her final impression of Spears teaching “something” in quarantine that takes the cake after a string of stellar celebrity mimicries Fineman has performed on SNL.

For those who have had the privilege of following the musician on Instagram for the past few years, you already know that the videos she shares of her exercise routine have clearly served as a source of unmitigated joy for Spears. You also should be able to recognize the sheer skill of Fineman being able to nail down every little head bob, twirl, and vocal inflection to a T.

In her impression of the singer, Fineman even made mention of the gym-burning incident that Spears revealed via Instagram last week. “I’ve been quarantined for five years now, and that’s okay, because all my favorite stuff is here,” she says in the spoof.

Thank you forever @jasminepierce @doronmaxhagay @jackklink @nbcsnl and especially to my insanely talented pal @melissavcomedy for this epic @johnmulaney impression!! Doing @britneyspears in the yard truly alarmed our neighbors!! And special thanks to @graceshaker @shartyparty69 @hannahpilkes @courtneydgrant for suggesting Britney. And shouts to @triplebeampizza for being a little tart of a pizza! And always, thank you bf ❤️. (P.s. @danlicatasucks Shia coming soon)

In addition to “Master Class: Quarantine Edition” for SNL, Fineman has been sharing her celebrity impressions on Instagram, taking on everyone from Tiger King‘s big cat rescuer Carole Baskin to Florence Pugh and her Instagram Story cooking demonstrations to Dame Judi Dench had she been invited to perform with Meryl Streep, Audra McDonald, and Christine Baranski at Stephen Sondheim’s 90th birthday celebration on Zoom.

And though SNL aired its season finale, at least you have all of the impressions archived on Fineman’s Instagram in case you need a little quarantine pick-me-up.
