"Saturday Night Live" nailed the elegiac mood of the week last night when Kate McKinnon sidestepped any jokes about election night and Hillary Clinton's loss. Dressed in her Clinton white pantsuit and wig, she sat down at the piano and played "Hallelujah" in memory of the great Leonard Cohen, who died earlier this week.

Watch the performance and try to keep your eyes dry. We dare you.
