Last night “Saturday Night Live” said a heartfelt goodbye to Seth Meyers as he leaves the show to take over Jimmy Fallon’s vacated spot hosting “Late Night”. The farewell brought out some of the biggest stars in the universe created by Meyers stint anchoring the Weekend Update desk. Amy Poehler and Bill Hader’s club kid Stefon worked together to help bring Meyers to the “other side”.
Amy and Stefon were soon joined by Golden Globe winner Andy Sandberg who serenaded Meyers for a job well done. In the end Meyers got a little misty, but held it together for the rest of the segment. He thanked everyone, including Lorne Michaels, for his run before handing it over one last time. Here’s the video of Seth’s final goodbye on SNL.
If that collection of stars wasn’t enough the great Fred Armisen pops up at the end in his classic Governor Patterson persona. Cecily Strong has her hands full when she officially takes over the “Weekend Update” job. Since the duo of Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon, the Update desk has been one of the brightest lights on the show. If her first few solo shows aren’t the fire then her update chair might start to feel some heat.
Seth Meyers takes officially takes over “Late Night” on February 24th.
