The poet and songwriter, who was born in Westmount, part of Montreal, died Monday in Los Angeles at the age of 82 and was buried Thursday in a family plot in Montreal.

The episode was hosted by comedian Dave Chappelle, who returned to the spotlight more than a decade after he left "Chappelle's Show".

"Saturday Night Live" managed to mine pathos and humor from the election of Donald Trump as president in its first show since Tuesday's election.

McKinnon, who frequently and brilliantly impersonated Clinton over the course of the USA presidential campaign, played and sang Cohen's beloved anthem "Hallelujah", including the closing verse above.

Just when we thought we'd run out of Kleenex from crying, Chappelle hit us with what ended up being the most talked-about skit from the night - his version of The Walking Dead. I did suspect it.

The comic also made light of the multiple sexual harassment allegations against Trump, as well as his open mic scandal where he was caught bragging about how stardom allows him to take liberties with women.

Last night's Saturday Night Live was hard to watch, but after the emotional and political unrest following the presidential election this past week, it might have been exactly what we needed. Chappelle spoke in all seriousness at his pride at seeing the White House filled with so many people representing some of America's historically disenfranchised citizens. So, in that spirit, I'm wishing Donald Trump luck.

That said, it's important to point out that - despite McKinnon's incredible, profound perfomance in this cold open - Saturday Night Live will be facing certain questions about their role in normalising Trump in the cultura; narrative, having invited the Republican candidate to host back in November of previous year - to much protest and criticism. I'd thank him for giving me, and teaching me to love Montreal and Greece. "We have lost one of music's most revered and prolific visionaries".
