Transcript for Kate McKinnon Performs 'Hallelujah' as Hillary Clinton in SNL Opening Sketch
How about news that goes pop there, Lara. Good morning to you. And to you. Viewers tuning in to "Snl" this weekend got a serious surprise. The show's opening sketch, which has just been hilarious with Alec Baldwin and Kate Mckinnon had a different tone. It was Kate in character sitting alone at a piano singing a touching redigs of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." ??? I'll stand before the lord of song with nothing on my tongue by hallelujah ??? Reprising her emmy-winning role, Kate sang as Clinton about her disappointment while also honoring Leonard Cohen who passed away last week. I didn't show she had such a gorgeous voice. She's so talented. It has struck a nice tone. Needed that tone. Have you ever wondered, I have had this wonder. McDonald's coke out of the machine is just more bubbling. Yeah. It's colder, more bubbly. Now we have the reason. I thought it was jst me. But no, I thought could it be the salty food. The syrup. The company is revealing the secret. The soda water in their machine is constantly recirculating through an insulating tubing system so it remains just above freezing. So, that it is extra fizzy. That crisp fizzy taste. The high-end water filtration system keeps the beverages cold. They have wider than Normal straws, also something that I noticed. For a truly thirst quenching experience. A "Pop news" investigation. And overtime. Wow. Yes, and we have solved it. I read about it. I share wit you. And then finally, everybody, also in "Pop news" this morning, 2 million social media users received the shoging of a lifetime this weekend when Facebook let them know they passed away. The site posting these in inmemorian maijs. We hope people who love blank -- the 2 million viewers are alive. Even Mark Zuckerberg was killed off on Friday. Thankfully, the company has fixed this bug. No word on what caused it. It's over. If you were mourning the loss of a friend do check. Probably didn't happen. Kind of a serious bug. A serious bug. Go have a coke and a smile. We will now, Lara. We will now.
