With Miley Cyrus as the host and musical guest for Saturday Night Live's Season 41 premiere last night (Oct. 3), you'd think all eyes would be peeled for the antic-loving pop star. Instead, the buzz of the night surrounded a special cameo by none other than Hillary Clinton.

In the thick of election season, the SNL skits were in full political satire mode and it was a huge platform as any for Clinton to kick off her campaign with...a drink! The former Secretary of State played Val the bartender who poured up a stiff one for SNL's Kate McKinnon, who played Clinton, naturally. There were a few light jabs on political issues, but Clinton generally got off easy; she even threw a couple of her own punches, namely at Donald Trump. "Isn't he the one that's like, 'Ugh you're all losers,'" Clinton said, imitating Trump. By the end, Clinton even broke into song, joining McKinnon for "Lean on Me." 

Not that Cyrus completely slid under the radar. She did appear for her monologue wearing a minidress and matching cap completely bedecked by flowers.
