Saturday Night Live brought together the castmembers that make up President Donald Trump's cabinet for the season 42 finale cold open.

Alec Baldwin's Trump, seated at a piano, kicked things off by singing the opening lines to Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway, Beck Bennett's Mike Pence, Cecily Strong's Melania Trump, Aidy Bryant's Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Alex Moffatt's Eric Trump, Mikey Day's Donald Trump Jr. and, of course, a Grim Reaper character representing Steve Bannon then joined in around the piano and sang along.

Scarlett Johansson also made a guest appearance as Ivanka Trump.

"I'm not giving up because I didn't do anything wrong, but I can't speak for these people," Baldwin's Trump said at the close of the song.

McKinnon previously gave an emotional performance of "Hallelujah" as Hillary Clinton during a cold open sketch, which aired after Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election.

SNL's highest-rated season in decades concluded on May 20 with Dwayne Johnson as host and Katy Perry as musical guest.
