STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

UKRAINIAN CHORUS DUMKA OF NEW YORK: (Singing in non-English language).

INSKEEP: "Saturday Night Live" usually starts the show with a comedy sketch. This weekend, no laughs. The cold open, as it's called, featured instead a group called the Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York. Candles on stage were arranged to spell out Kyiv as they sang.
