For its season finale on May 17, "Saturday Night Live" brought back some of its former stars.

The evening kicked off with the return of Maya Rudolph, who dusted off her Beyonce impression for a skit on the Jay Z/Solange elevator fight (you didn't think that "SNL" was going to let that opportunity slide, did you?).
