4 winners and 2 losers from Saturday Night Live’s season premiere

  4 winners and 2 losers from Saturday Night Live’s season premiere Jim Carrey debuts as Joe Biden, Alec Baldwin is over playing Trump, Chris Rock nailed it, and we hope everyone stays healthy.Going back to the studio didn’t necessarily mean going back to “normal” for SNL, however: There’s still the issue of Covid-19, its impact on film production, and its continued toll on the society that SNL comments on. Masks are commonplace; social distancing is the norm; more than 1 million people worldwide have died. As of this Friday, right before the season premiere, even President Donald Trump has contracted the illness.

The fourth episode of the show's 46th season was on Saturday night and was hosted by singer Adele.

The "SNL" Village People appeared on the "Weekend Update" portion of the show, which stars co-anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che.

"SNL" cast members dressed up as the five iconic Village People characters: soldier, construction worker, biker, cowboy, and cop.

They used the instrumental music of "YMCA," but sang new lyrics, replacing the "Y-M-C-A" chorus with "Cease-and-Desist."

"Stop it/Yeah, I'm talking to you/I said, stop it/This is long overdue/'Cause we never/said that we support you/You. Must. Pay. To. Use. Our. Songs," the cast sang.

They also sang about Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard professor who's represented Trump, and late financier and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

We're answering your coronavirus questions.The president announced on Twitter early Friday that he and the first lady had tested positive for the coronavirus and, since then, more than two dozen people in and around the White House have also tested positive.

Their lyrics also mentioned Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump.

"I promise you will we shave Ivanka's head" they sang, adding "I promise you she will look like Jean-Luc Picard," a captain from "Star Trek."

Trump has danced to "YMCA" at many of his campaign rallies.

He was most recently seen dancing to the song at rallies in Des Moines, Iowas on October 14; Phoenix, Arizona on October 19; Tuscon, Arizona on October 19; and Erie, Pennsylvania on October 21.

In June, Village People singer and co-founder Victor Willis told Trump to stop playing "YMCA" and "Macho Man" at his campaign rallies.

In a Facebook post, Willis wrote that he disagreed with Trump's use of force to clear peaceful protestors so he could take a photo in front of St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington, DC, on June 1.

"Don't do it Mr. President! And I ask that you no longer use any of my music at your rallies especially "Y.M.C.A." and "Macho Man." Sorry, but I can no longer look the other way," Willis wrote.

14 Superstars You Probably Forgot Got Their Start on Saturday Night Live

  14 Superstars You Probably Forgot Got Their Start on Saturday Night Live Before they were Oscar nominees and Emmy winners, they were SNL cast members.Some of those stars stuck around for long tenures—like Kenan Thompson, now in his record 18th season, and Kate McKinnon, the longest serving female cast member ever with nine seasons—while others had a decidedly shorter time on the sketch show.

The Village People aren't the only artists who have asked Trump to stop playing their music at his rallies.

In June, The Rolling Stones threatened to sue Trump's campaign for using their songs at rallies and events.

In July, Neil Young said he was "not OK" with his music being played at Trump's Independence Day event at Mount Rushmore.

In August, the estate of late Canadian singer Leonard Cohen said it was considering legal action after Cohen's song "Hallelujah" was played after Trump's acceptance speech for the Republican nomination.

And in mid-October, John Fogerty said he was issuing a cease-and-desist order to the Trump campaign to stop his music from being played at the president's events.

Representatives for the Village People did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
