The cast member partied at the show’s official season finale afterparty at Rockefellar Center with the night’s musical guest, Katy Perry, and even had a sing-off to Bruno Mars‘ latest hit, “That’s What I Like” with the pop star.
“Seriously we turned up last night at
@nbcsnl wrap party,” Jones, 49, captioned a video of her and Perry getting down to the jam with other party-goers. “Me and @katyperry had to turn out the old man lmao!! Katy you are a QUEEN!!”
The comedian even got a selfie with the 32-year-old singer, who donned an unbottoned white blouse over a black dress for the late-night festivities.
“Fav pic of night!!” she wrote. “We boogied y’all!!

Perry performed her singles “Swish Swish” — the Nicki Minaj-featured track that is rumored to be a diss track aimed at Taylor Swift — and “Bon Appetit” on the show’s season finale, hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Less than 24 hours after premiering “Swish Swish,” Perry was on Friday’s Tonight Show talking what (or who) influenced the song’s lyrics.
