    Tina Fey returned to host "Saturday Night Live" for the sixth time and lead the powerhouse sketch show's star-studded season 43 finale.

    During her opening monologue, she took questions from the audience, including one from Jerry Seinfeld, who wondered if SNL had too many celebrity guests lately and popular names were crowding the lineup. Fey admitted it "hurts the show a little bit," but the debate continued — with a slew of famous faces.

    Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Rock, Fred Armisen, Anne Hathaway, Robert DeNiro and Donald Glover, who was looking for his hat after having recently hosted, raised their hands and offered various insights to Fey.

    Tracy Morgan stopped by to wish Fey a happy 48th birthday and to let her know that he would step in if "her man" wasn't making her feel special. 

    Lin-Manuel Miranda added Fey to his burn book in a parodied behind-the-scenes look at Fey's Broadway musical "Mean Girls."  

    The cold open was a nod to "The Sopranos," with President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, Michael Cohen, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Robert Mueller all dining at the same Holsten’s diner in New Jersey. 

    Alec Baldwin reprised his role as President Trump, who was seen sitting alone before being joined by his lawyer, Giuliani, played by Kate McKinnon.

    Ben Stiller as Michael Cohen joined the table and was asked how his day at work went. "Really bad," he replied. "Mostly just preparing to go to jail and stuff."

    Trump Jr., played by Mikey Day, arrived at the table and explained that Alex Moffat's Eric Trump was outside trying to "parallel park" his big wheel.

    Special counsel Mueller, played by Robert De Niro, entered the diner and sat down, but Trump was the only one who could see him. 

    As Mueller walked past Trump, he gave him the menacing "I have my eyes on you" sign. The scene then cut to black. 

    Musical guest Nicki Minaj caused a stir on social media with many calling her performance cultural appropriation. 

    In her live rendition of "Chun Li," Minaj wore traditional Japanese dress with chopsticks in her hair. She was flanked by Asian backup dancers under a neon-lit pagoda.
