The U.S. may seem divided in the days following the presidential election, but this week's "Saturday Night Live" with highly-anticipated host Dave Chappelle sought to inject some levity to Donald Trump's surprise win.
In contrast to this season's regular cold opens featuring Alec Baldwin as Trump and Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton playing off one another, Saturday's opening kicked off sans Baldwin and on a more somber note. McKinnon appeared alone as Clinton in an white pantsuit playing piano while singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," in a nod to the Canadian music legend who died earlier this week.
The song ended with McKinnon as Clinton saying: "I'm not giving up and neither should you. And live from New York, it's Saturday night."
