Hillary Clinton And Bernie Sanders Dance Away Their Troubles On SNL

After a bitter campaign, the rivals unite for one last dance before it is all over.

Fred Armisen hosted the season finale of "Saturday Night Live," with Larry David reprising his role as Bernie Sanders — possibly for the last time. Larry David as Sanders opened the show by sharing a dance with Kate McKinnon, who plays Hillary Clinton.

The skit begins with Hillary excitedly telling the bartender, "I've done it, I've won the nomination!"

"I mean, no I haven't, I keep losing states," she concedes. "But mathematically, I've done it! To math!"

The former secretary of state ribbed David’s Bernie Sanders during the show’s cold open, reminiscing with the Vermont senator as he refused to leave a bar.

“It’s not over 'til I say it’s over,” Sanders said while being refused a drink.

The two Democratic presidential hopefuls then exited the bar, breaking the fourth wall, and waltzed hand-in-hand to where the studio audience was seated. They continued to dance until Clinton tried to say bye-bye Bernie at the end of the ballet, pushing him into an elevator and sending him downward.

The final sketch of the night, and also of the season, was packed with special guests, along with Grammy-nominated Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett as Saturday's musical guest and the entire Season 41 cast. Jason Sudeikis, Andy Samberg, Maya Rudolph, and Larry David joined a '70s-style Southern rock band. Carrie Brownstein from Portlandia was there too, playing guitar. Just as everyone wanted.
