Hudson continued, “You all are pathetic and this Chloe [Fineman] isn’t funny. Did you find her on Craigslist or something?”
In the pre-taped sketch, Fineman reprised her impersonation of Spears. This time, the sketch revolved around the “Stronger” singer’s memoir “The Woman in Me.” Clips of the audiobook narrated by Michelle Williams went viral on social media and this is where the SNL idea came from in showcasing the supposed casting process to find the best person for the job.
The celebrity readers in the sketch included Allison Janney (by Heidi Gardner), Martin Scorcese (by Chalamet because how unfunny would it be if he played himself?), John Mulaney (Sarah Sherman), the B52s’ Fred Schneider (Bowen Yang), and Jada Pinkett Smith (Ego Nwodim).
Fineman has been impersonating Spears on the NBC late-night show for years and is one of her most recognizable impersonations alongside Drew Barrymore.
