‘SNL’ Said “I’m Gonna Miss You” to Kristen Wiig

Posted on May 20, 2012 and filed under Saturday Night Live

Kristen Wiig got a musical send-off on the season finale of Saturday Night Live last night, as the popular and versatile cast member made her exit after seven years, writes USA Today. In the show’s final sketch, guest host Mick Jagger played the principal at a high school graduation and brought up Wiig, in cap and gown, as “one particular student who is leaving this summer.” She danced in turn with Jagger, cast members and executive producer Lorne Michaels to the tune of the Rolling Stones classic She’s a Rainbow. Then the ensemble sang another Stones hit, Ruby Tuesday, with its line, “still I’m gonna miss you.” Wiig appeared to be holding back tears. A video of the sad-but-beautiful part of last night’s show will be coming soon, as will the HD screen captures. Keep checking KristenWiig.org for that!

Though NBC had made no prior announcement of her departure, it comes as no surprise. She starred in and co-wrote the hit comedy Bridesmaids, and even before that had notable roles in Friends With Kids, Paul, Adventureland and Knocked Up, among other films. She has six more in various stages of development. Wiig’s almost limitless range of characters on SNL has included neurotic attention-seeker Penelope; Kat, half of the musical duo Garth and Kat (alongside Fred Armisen); and such real-life notables as Bjork, Kathie Lee Gifford and former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

    it was SO incredibly sad…can’t help but cry everytime I think about it. And I will probably never be able to listen to Ruby Tuesday again, I cry everytime I hear that song!
