Saoirse Ronan Opening Monologue
Saoirse Ronan opened her first appearance as host at SNL with a reminder about how difficult it is to pronounce her name. Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Beck Bennett and Aidy Bryant all joined her on stage to take a stab at it but none of them really seemed to get it.
Welcome To Hell
Ronan, Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong and Leslie Jones joined together to create a fake girl group in a music video highlighting the recent sexual abuse scandals rocking Hollywood and politics. The song, “Welcome To Hell” is catchy and poignant. Check it out!

In another sketch, Mikey Day plays a grown adult man who just happened to be at an American Girl doll store when an explosion happened. But when the news interviews him, things get very, very weird with him and his intentions.
