Noah Kahan sprinkled some Guts into his debut performance at BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.

For his first-ever Live Lounge set, he of course performed “Stick Season,” and he also played an Olivia Rodrigo album track: the ballad “Lacy.”

“Lacy, oh Lacy, skin like puff pastry/ Aren’t you the sweetest thing on this side of hell?/ Dear angel Lacy, eyes white as daisies/ Did I ever tell you that I’m not doin’ well?” Kahan sweetly sang Thursday (Nov. 23), backed by his band and backup singers.

Kahan’s dreamy cover of “Lacy” comes soon after Rodrigo paid a compliment to him by performing one of his songs. In October, Rodrigo included a cover of Kahan’s breakthrough hit during her Live Lounge set.

“Is this real,” tweeted a shocked Kahan had tweeted after seeing Rodrigo’s version of “Stick Season.”

The singer-songwriter will soon be making another debut, as the musical guest for Saturday Night Live on the Emma Stone-hosted Dec. 2 episode.

“Snl snl snl oh my god,” he wrote the day the SNL lineup was announced. Then he shared, “I’ll never forget taking a piss next to the man who was hosting the open mic that I’d just played. He said ‘it’s a real tough business and I’ve seen lots of talented people not make it’ I’d never felt so hopeless about my career. I wonder who I’ll piss next to at SNL??”
