'Saturday Night Live' Pays Touching Tribute To Paris

"We stand with you."

One day after a series of coordinated terrorist attacks rocked Paris and left 129 people dead, NBC's "Saturday Night Live" paid a simple yet touching tribute to the victims and their loved ones.

Instead of a traditional cold open, the show began with cast member Cecily Strong offering a message of solidarity in both English and French. 

"Paris is the city of light, and here in New York City, we know that light will never go out," she said.
