Watch: Snl's Newtown Tribute

Saturday Night Live took a different approach to its cold open on the night after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Instead of starting with a topical joke, the show kicked off with a touching performance of 'Silent Night', as sung by the New York City Children's Chorus, to pay tribute to those lost and affected by the tragedy. Singing by candlelight, the choir performed in red robes, and delivered the "Live, from New York, it's Saturday night" line together, just before the opening credits.
