VIDEO: Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton Performs Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' on 'SNL'

The first episode of Saturday Night Live that aired after the election featured a much more serious and emotional cold opening than usual.

Kate McKinnon sat at the piano – dressed, once again, as Hillary Clinton – and paid tribute to the late Leonard Cohen by singing his classic hit “Hallelujah.”

Alec Baldwin‘s Donald Trump was nowhere to be seen.

“I’m not giving up, and neither should you,” Kate said after finishing the cover.

Leonard sadly passed away earlier this week – watch Coldplay‘s Chris Martin honor him with a cover of “Suzanne” here.

VIDEO: Chris Rock Joins Dave Chappelle for 'SNL' Election Night Parody - Watch!

Chris Rock stopped by tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live and performed an election night spoof with host Dave Chappelle.

In the sketch, the two get together on election night and aren’t quite as surprised as their white friends when the group realizes Donald Trump might turn out victorious.

The friends wonder why less people showed up to cast their vote for Hillary Clinton than they did for Barack Obama.

“Maybe because you’re replacing a charismatic black guy with a 70-year-old white woman,” Chris laughs. “That’s like the Knicks replacing Patrick Ewing with Neil Patrick Harris.”

“You guys were right, it’s a historic night,” Dave says. “Don’t worry, eight years are gonna fly by.”

“Get some rest,” Chris adds. “You got a big day of moping and writing on Facebook tomorrow.”
