The star performed a setlist featuring songs from her latest album, "Radical Optimism," including hits like "Training Season," "Houdini," "Happy for You," and "Illusion."

The surprise event came just after Lipa's memorable appearance on "Saturday Night Live" (SNL), where she not only performed but also took on hosting duties. In her SNL monologue, Lipa humorously referred to herself as "Dula Peep" and shared heartfelt anecdotes about her parents, who were present in the audience, highlighting their support throughout her journey from Kosovo to London at the age of 15 to pursue her music career.

The Grammy Award-winning artist was joined by notable guest stars during her SNL performance, including Jerry Seinfeld and Troye Sivan, who introduced "Happy for You" and "Illusion," respectively. This marked her first return to SNL since performing alongside host Kristen Wiig in 2020.

Ahead of her SNL stint, Lipa expressed excitement and a touch of nerves during an interview on SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up. She discussed her experiences and rehearsals for the show, giving insights into the camaraderie and the creative process behind the scenes with SNL cast members like Bowen Yang and producer Lorne Michaels.

Fans who missed the surprise performance can catch Dua Lipa's full album "Radical Optimism," available for streaming on all major platforms. Her spontaneous concert not only showcased her dynamic presence but also thrilled her audience, proving once again why she remains a dominant force in the music industry.
