Wiig’s emotional farewell...used a loose graduation premise to send her off in style. As Arcade Fire played “She’s a Rainbow,” Wiig danced with each of her cast mates in turn and tried to hold back tears. She seemed particularly choked up when Hader and Jason Sudeikis cut in. Finally, SNL head honcho Lorne Michaels had the last dance, and the band segued into “Ruby Tuesday.” Jagger, the band, and the cast sang the wistful tune together, joined by a few SNL vets — Amy Poehler! Rachel Dratch! Chris Kattan? — who had turned out to see Wiig off. Whether or not you’re Wiig’s biggest fan, it’s tough to watch this touching tribute without tearing up.
