NEW YORK (AP) – Amy Poehler returned to “Weekend Update” for the star-studded season finale of “Saturday Night Live.”

After a season infused by politics and Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin impression, “SNL” wrapped up its 34th season – one of its best-rated ever – with cameos galore.

Along with host Will Ferrell, making appearances were Tom Hanks, Anne Hathaway and Paul Rudd. Former castmembers Maya Rudolph and Norm MacDonald also stopped by.

Former “SNL” star Poehler left the show earlier in the season to launch her NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation.” For one more time, she stepped back into her place at the news desk with her “Weekend Update” co-host, Seth Meyers.

All took part in the last sketch, a deadpan sing-along of Billy Joel’s “Goodnight Saigon” led by Ferrell and accompanied by the musical guest, Green Day.
