Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Drivers License’ Gets ‘SNL’ Guys Emotional: Watch

Rege-Jean Page and cast of 'SNL'

While Page explains the song, it becomes clear that they’re not as unfamiliar with with Rodrigo as they may seem. “I guess it’s about a girl getting her driver’s license. It’s bittersweet because it’s something she and her ex always talked about,” Bennett adds, clearly familiar. “That’s what I guessed based on hearing it for the first time right now.”

The guys then talk about what inspired the lyrics, including Rodrigo’s rumored relationship with High School Musical: The Musical: The Series costar Joshua Bassett, who reportedly moved on with Sabrina Carpenter.

Soon after, the guys find themselves belting out the emotional lyrics, using their pool cues as microphones. They went on to reveal their knowledge of young pop singers, comparing Rodrigo to Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift, before once more letting their emotions — triggered by the song — get the best of them.

The sketch ended with the guys with their arms around each other, singing the bridge at the top of their lungs.

Rodrigo, who just turned 18 on Feb. 20, shared her excitement about having her debut single featured in an SNL sketch. “DRIVERS LICENSE SNL SKETCH IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER IM SHAKING,” she tweeted.
