On Saturday, Sasheer Zamata will make her debut as Saturday Night Live's newest cast member and we can't wait to see what the Upright Citizens Brigade alum will bring to the sketch series.

Thankfully, the Internet exists and we don't have to. Zamata's website and YouTube channel offer glimpses of what we can expect when she hits the stage — with host and musical guest Drake — this weekend.

Based on her previous work, here are our suggestions for who Zamata should play on SNL and why:

Michelle Obama: Because Jay Pharaoh gets lonely sometimes in the Oval Office.

A guest on Girlfriends Talk Show: Because as much as we love Morgan (Aidy Bryant) and Kyra (Cecily Strong), it'd be nice to shake things up.

Any judge on any reality show: Because she can bring Paula Abdul-level absurdity to the panel.

Orange Is the New Black's Crazy Eyes: Because Zamata can perfectly capture delusional swag with an undercurrent of vulnerability:

The star of a Her parody: Because it's Oscar season!

Beyonce: Because Maya Rudolph can't come back every time Queen Bey does something (like release a secret "visual album").

Janelle MonaeBecause like The Electric Lady, Zamata knows how to put on a show you'll never forget.

An Avenger: Because not every superhero is white.

Scandal's Olivia Pope: Because no matter the situation, Zamata can handle it.

Are you excited for Zamata's debut?

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC.
