The season finale of SNL had some fine moments including another terrific Jon Hamm appearance, an always welcome cameo from the usually hilarious Steve Martin in The Californians, some nice sketches with host Mick Jagger, great musical performances with Jagger playing along with Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters, and Jeff Beck, Stefon punching up The Update segment, and Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg’s Digital Short Lazy Sunday 2. But the highlight of the night had to be the last sketch when the current cast (and Lorne Michaels) said a heartfelt goodbye to the amazingly talented Kristen Wiig. With Arcade Fire leading the band with a solid version of The Rolling Stones classic, “She’s a Rainbow,” each cast member took a turn dancing with Kristen Wiig before Mick Jagger came out to say the final goodbyes of the season. The goodbyes have always been one of our favorite parts of SNL, and last night featured an animate Jon Hamm as well as former cast members including Parnell, Will Forte, Chris Kataan, Amy Poehler, and Rachel Dratch. It’s going to be tough to replace Wiig, but I think that Abby Elliott, Kate McKinnon, and Vanessa Bayer are all up for the challenge. There were also many rumors about Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis leaving the show, but they are either staying or weren’t afforded the heartwarming goodbye that they gave to Wiig. I hope Sudeikis stays on at least through the election so we get a few more appearances from his Mitt Romney impression. We’ll see what happens next season.
