Saturday Night Live ditched the regular presidential campaign laughs and got emotional for its opening sketch.
Instead, it started with a solemn McKinnon as Clinton on the piano singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
"I did my best, it wasn't much / I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch / I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you."
It was a touching moment because not only did Clinton lose the election on Tuesday, but the legendary singer died earlier this week.
You might have thought it was just a preview for the coming laughs, but no.
"And even though it all went wrong / I'll stand before the lord of song / With nothing on my tongue but hallelujah."
McKinnon kept singing and even appeared to be tearing up.
Then when the song came to an end, she offered just this line:
"I'm not giving up, and neither should you."
