Lizzo Shares Preview Of 'The Simpsons' Appearance
Lizzo shared a preview on Sunday of her appearance in this weekend’s season finale of The Simpsons.
In the episode airing May 21, the pop star voices both an elf doll and herself.
“Every Icon has been on @thesimpsons — now I can add my name to the list!,” she captioned a clip on Instagram. “Thank you to the whole team for making this a dream come true … !!!!”
Lizzo’s flute, which has its own Instagram account, also posted a clip and captioned it: “Ok…. How do I say this w out gettin too cocky…. IM OFFICIALLY THE MOST FAMOUS FLUTE IN D WORLD.”
The episode, titled “Homer’s Adventure Through the Windshield Glass,” takes place in the few seconds that Homer Simpson goes through the windshield as his car crashes. An elf doll in his car comes to life and acts as his spirit guide.

Lizzo, as the elf doll, sings a song called “It Was Marge, Bitch” that was written by executive producer Tim Long with Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords.
At the end of the episode, animated Lizzo appears in a recording studio, where she invites Lisa Simpson to jam the show's theme music on her "saxamaphone" (a reference to a Season 9 episode of The Simpsons).
Last month, Lizzo appeared in an episode of The Mandalorian.
A long list of music artists have made cameos on The Simpsons in its 34 seasons, including Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Chris Martin and Elton John – as well as Canadians like The Weeknd (Season 33), Paul Anka (Season 7), Bachman Turner Overdrive (Season 11) and Justin Bieber (Season 24).
