Iggy Azalea Slays 'SNL' Debut Despite Mediocre Guest Stars Rita Ora and MØ

Iggy Azalea is a pretty awful rapper who has given some truly disastrous performances in the past, so it was quite a pleasant surprise to see just how well she did as the musical guest on this weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live.

The I-G-G-Y was in full pop-star mode for her glossy performances of "Fancy," "Black Widow," and catchy new single "Beg For It."

Like Nicki Minaj promoting "Anaconda," Iggy came fully-equipped with choreography, backup dancers, and props -- and I gotta say, by female rapper standards, her dancing was pretty damn good.

While Iggy slayed everything, the same can't be said for her guest stars, Danish singer  and the strangely ubiquitous Rita Ora.

MØ sounded terrible and later took to social media to blame it on technical issues (Iggy also defended her on Instagram), while Rita was just plain awkward and came off as a total amateur in Iggy's presence.

Thank god that Iggy's a big enough star by now that by the time her next album comes out, she'll be able to pull some bigger and better features to sing her hooks.
