'SNL' Lawrence Welk Cold Open With Elton John & The Finger Lake Sisters (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We love it when 'SNL' visits the bizarrely wholesome Lawrence Welk Show world, with its bubbles, satin curtains and not-quite-perfect singing sisters. And since Elton John was playing both host and musical guest this time around, it was a great opportunity for a Liberace-esque "confirmed bachelor" character.

In this unsettling salute to Spring, Elton John's Francis Lynn March gets a little help from the Finger Lake Sisters, including Kristen Wiig as the physically, musically and cognitively challenged sister, Dooneese.
