It was an emotional moment for all as a popular comedian, and actress Kate McKinnon is bidding her final goodbyes as her time on SNL has come to a glorious end. Kate McKinnon joined the cast of Saturday Night Live during season 37 back in 2012.

As Kate McKinnon appeared during the episode’s cold open in the popular segment called ‘Close Encounter’ sketch, where the comedian reprised her role of Miss Rafferty, who is a woman abducted by aliens and ends up experiencing a much different ordeal than her fellow abductees. Show creator Lorne Michaels had earlier admitted that he was expecting this year to be a “year of change” for the show. Even fellow star Aidy Bryant is also bidding farewell to SNL.

She rose to huge fame and success as fans loved her on the iconic late-night show. Take a look at the video clip as our beloved star bids adieu to the show.


Kate McKinnon was getting emotional as she was bidding adieu to Saturday Night Live, and as she placed her hand on her chest, the star slowly closed out the sketch and said the show’s signature catchphrase, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday night!” This was soon followed by loud cheers and applause from the audience.
