Tina Fey was back on the "Saturday Night Live" stage on Saturday, to host the show where she was once the head writer and cast member on.

Fey reprised her popular impression of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin during her hosting stint, in a Republican debate sketch that included former cast member Darrell Hammond's return to the show to reprise his Donald Trump impression. Be sure to check out the clip below.

"First, I want to acknowledge that this week we finally vanquished one of the world's great villains, and I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric!" Fey said during the sketch, referencing Katie Couric's recent announcement that she is leaving her post at CBS news. "The most importing thing for people to know is that I'm going to be running for president every four years for the rest of my life. It's my Olympics and I intend to win a whole bunch of silvers!"

The "30 Rock" star won an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her impression of Palin on an episode of the NBC sketch comedy show in 2008, the year the politician ran for vice president.

In her book "Bossypants" Fey speculated that her impressions of Sarah Palin may have hurt ratings for her current show "30 Rock."

"Some may argue that exploiting Governor Palin and her family helped bring attention to my low-rated TV show," Fey said in her memoir "Bossypants," which was released on April 5. "I am proud to say you are wrong. My TV show still enjoys very low ratings."

"In fact, I think the Palin stuff may have hurt the TV show," she added. "Let's face it, between Alec Baldwin and me there is a certain fifty percent of the population who think we are pinko Commie monsters."

"Saturday Night Live" also saw a return of former cast member Maya Rudolph who sang a duet with Fey during the monologue. Fey, who is six months pregnant with her second child, and Ruldolph, who is also pregnant, sang a song about their impeding motherhood. Kristen Wiig and Kenan Thompson played their unborn children, who later joined in on the song "Natalie Cole style," said Fey.

The musical guest for the episode was Ellie Goulding, the British singer who recently performed at the royal wedding.
