“Well that was the most nerve wracking/emotional/happy experience of my life,” she captioned the snap. “Thank u 4ever @nbcsnl.”

Rodrigo’s SNL debut came three months after she got a shout-out on the comedy series in a sketch about her hit song “Drivers License” following all the drama surrounding who it was written about.

“DRIVERS LICENSE SNL SKETCH IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER,” she tweeted on February 20, the same day she turned 18. “IM [sic] SHAKING.”

During the February episode, several cast members debated the meaning of Rodrigo’s song, which is allegedly about her relationship with her TV costar Joshua Bassett and his new romance with Sabrina Carpenter.

“I think I overheard on the news or something that it’s actually about the kids from High School Musical — I don’t know,” Alex Moffat explained, to which Pete Davidson replied: “Oh, who? Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron, Sharpay — that whole crew?”

Page then clarified that it was speculated to be about the new High School Musical series following Rodrigo’s alleged fallout with Bassett, 20.

The Bizaardvark alum made headlines in January when fans claimed that she wrote the track about her costar after the pair allegedly dated. Listeners believed that Rodrigo was throwing shade at Bassett and his new girlfriend based on numerous lyrics in the track. The Girl Meets World alum, 22, and Bassett have since released their own music, some of which fans think is a response to the An American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Success actress’ tune.

Rodrigo addressed the controversy the same month, telling Billboard, “I totally understand people’s curiosity with the specifics of who the song’s about and what it’s about, but to me, that’s really the least important part of the song. It’s resonating with people because of how emotional it is, and I think everything else is not important.”
