It’s a special mother/daughter edition of “Who Wore It Better?” as former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin arrived at the SNL 40th Anniversary Special last night wearing the same dress her daughter Bristol Palin wore to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2011.

Last night Lady Gaga was the host and musical guest on SNL, but during her performance of the Bruce Springsteen-inspired “Gypsy” she got upstaged by her peppy and passionate purple-pantsed tambourine man!

The 20-year-old singer dressed relatively conservatively (at least conservatively enough to not take away from her performance) and remained essentially stationary as she belted out hair-raisingly powerful and emotional renditions of “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop.” But don’t take my word for it — keep reading to watch both performances in HD from Miley’s official Vevo account!
