Lizzo has shared a preview of her upcoming episode on The Simpsons—the Season 34 finale, which airs on May 21—in which she plays herself. In the sneak peek, Lizzo can be seen recording lines as a voice actor next to Homer for an animated show. When one thing leads to another and Bart starts slapping Homer repeatedly, Lizzo turns it into the backing beat of The Simpsons theme song, pulls out her flute to play along, and encourages Lisa to join in on saxophone. Watch the clip on Instagram.
“Every Icon has been on @thesimpsons — now I can add my name to the list!” Lizzo wrote on Instagram. “Thank you to the whole team for making this a dream come true 💖 (yes I’m wearing @yitty and playing @sashabefluting )!!!!”
Last year, The Simpsons landed cameos from some other high-profile musicians, including a scatting Billie Eilish as herself and the Weeknd as a child influencer and skate sneaker guru. Bad Bunny also cast Homer and Marge in his own “Te Deseo lo Mejor” music video.
