Even SNL wanted to honor the legendary Whitney Houston in their own way.
The show paid a silent tribute to Whitney by displaying a picture of her with SNL alum Molly Shannon from a 1996 Mary Katherine Gallagher sketch.
Interestingly enough, Maya Rudolph, who did a Whitney impression on the show, will be hosting next week. We bet they will throw in another tribute to her next week - maybe this time with some laughs instead of tears.
Watch SNL's nod to Whitney above.
