Mick Jagger hosts Kristen Wiig 'SNL' Off

The 37th season of "Saturday Night Live", popular American late-night live television sketch comedy and variety show, has ended with Mick Jagger’s phenomenal performance. All those who follow the show are now talking about last night’s season finale, on which Jagger performed a blues number he wrote about the upcoming presidential election, with Jeff Beck on guitar. Living up to its theme, the show was extremely laconic and funny and Jagger’s sarcasm-laden performance made it even better.

Fans that missed last night’s episode and Jagger’s performance can look up for videos online. The performance was full of jibes on Mitt Romney. He switched gears only in the second verse to wonder who’s going to win the election in November. He portrayed everyone from an eccentric Steven Tyler to a J.P. Morgan executive, a blasé Californian, and an isolated insurance salesman. Other than that there was more entertainment in the form of weird singing sister from the Finger Lakes, stage diva and perpetual Secret Word loser Mindy Elise Grayson. Jon Hamm and Steve Martin made cameos and former castmembers, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, and Chris Kattan showed up to pay tribute to Wiig.

Season 37 was definitely a notch above the last one and it has also set a higher precedent for the next one. Mick Jagger ended the finale with his impressive comic turn. Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis, who both made things very interesting this season, are rumored to be leaving, but producer Lorne Michaels hasn’t confirmed these rumors yet.

The season began with the same cast from season 36. Prior to the start of the season, Nasim Pedrad was upgraded to repertory status. All those who have been enjoying Paul Brittain will no longer see him on "SNL", as he has left to explore other projects. Many changes have been made.

McKinnon is "SNL's" first openly gay cast member hired since Terry Sweeney in 1985. This was also the end for Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg, who had been cast members since 2005. They both left at the end of the season.
