SNL skipped the usually political cold open to its show last night, and instead cat member Cecily Strong paid simple tribute to the horrific terrorist attacks that went on in Paris last Friday.
“Paris is the City of Light, and here in New York City, we know that light will never go out. Our love and support is with everyone there tonight; we stand with you.”
The actress then recited the exact statement in very good French (as far as my ear could tell) before saying,
“Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night.”
