Host Anna Kendrick ~ Saturday Night Live by HumanSlinky

Anna Kendrick delivered some pretty unforgettable musical performances during her first appearance on Saturday Night Live. But we didn't really expect anything less from the Pitch Perfect starlet.

The fun tunes began right out of the gate with Kendrick channeling her excitement by singing her opening monologue to a popular Disney number.

"I got my start in musical theater," the adorable redhead told the audience. "When I was ten, my dad took me to see Beauty on the Beast on Broadway and I just knew I wanted to be up there, so to be here on this New York stage is so incredibly exciting. It just feels like something out of a story book," the 28-year-old actress said before performing her own quirky version of "Belle."

Continuing with the Disney theme, Kendrick also took on The Little Mermaid and portrayed a pop-singing version of Ariel.

A 90s-esque sultry Kendrick joined fellow "nasty girls" Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong and Sasheer Zamata in an electrifying sketch called "Dongs All Over the World." The important mission? The ladies sing about traveling the world, and ditching the popular tourist attractions while they're at it, in search of the perfect "dong." Icona Pop also make a fun cameo.

The recurring sketch "Les Jeunes de Paris," featuring the ensemble in a Parisian cafe as they vibrantly dance to a French pop song without speaking, gave a quick but special ode to Pitch Perfect's "Cups." Things don't go as smoothly for Kendrick this time around and it might have something to do with the fact that she is using a coffee mug.

Musical guest, and birthday boy, Pharrell Williams performed "Happy" and "Marilyn Monroe."
