Saturday Night Live broke with tradition and opened the late night show with a beautiful and understated tribute to the people of Paris following the terrorist attacks that killed 129 people, while injuring over 300 more.
Cast-member Cecily Strong eloquently spoke of Paris, saying: “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,” before repeating the message in French.
In the quiet studio –and without opening music — she then delivered the traditional, “And now, live from New York, it’s Saturday night.”
Watch the opening below, posted to Twitter by NBC:
We stand with you, Paris. https://t.co/hqUX4oqWMj
