"Saturday Night Live" departed from its usual comedic opening. Instead, the show paid tribute to the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary school.
According to Wall Street Journal, SNL decided to open the show with a children's choir instead if a comedic sketch. The choir sang "Silent Night".
According to ABC, the choir was the New York City Children's Chorus, and once they finished singing, they shouted the usual introduction: "live from New York, it's Saturday Night!"
According to Daily Mail, on Friday, an NBC spokesperson said that the live show would air as planned but they did not mention whether or not the Newtown tragedy would be touched.
SNL alum Martin Short hosted last night's episode, and other alums also appeared on the show.
