‘Saturday Night Live’ Opens With Tribute Song to Ukraine: Watch

Saturday Night Live normally kicks off each show with some humor, but the comedy sketch series opened with a tribute performance to Ukraine amid the ongoing Russian invasion.

The Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York performed a “Prayer for Ukraine” during the opening of SNL on Saturday on Feb. 26. Cast members Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong introduced the choir.

The choir sang the melancholy tune in front of a live audience and a table of candles that spelled the name of Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv.

Russian troops launched an attack on Ukraine this week. The ongoing invasion involves explosions and airstrikes on the city.

Watch the Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York on SNL below, and see the full episode on Hulu here. The streaming service is currently offering a 30-day free trial, which you can sign up for here.
