Lizzo just got “The Simpsons” treatment.

The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter appeared on Sunday night’s episode of the beloved animated sitcom, playing herself in a scene with iconic characters like Homer, Bart, and Lisa Simpson.

The “About Damn Time” singer took to Instagram to celebrate her appearance on the show, calling it a “dream come true” in a caption underneath her scene, as People Magazine reported. In the clip, Lizzo plays herself alongside Homer as they record voice-over work for an animated project.

The scene calls for Lizzo to slap Homer. While she’s uncomfortable hitting him, Bart isn’t, and starts to slap his dad in rhythm. That leads Lizzo to whip out her signature flute, “Sasha Flute” and play along to the beat while Homer’s daughter Lisa plays the saxophone.

She wrote in the caption, “Every Icon has been on @thesimpsons — now I can add my name to the list! Thank you to the whole team for making this a dream come true 💖.” She also added that in addition to appearing with “Sasha Flute,” she also is wearing her shapewear brand, Yitty, in the clip.

This is not the first time Lizzo has revealed that she enjoys “The Simpsons,” as People Magazine reported. The singer wore a Marge Simpson costume last Halloween, complete with bright yellow painted skin and a towering blue wig.

The singer is currently on the third leg of her popular “Special’ world tour, in support of the album of the same name. Check out her official site here.
