Emmys Opening Number Mockingly Pats Hollywood on the Back for Progress on Diversity: ‘We Solved it!’

The Emmys kicked off Monday night with a star-studded opening number mocking Hollywood for having “solved” its diversity problem.

Kate McKinnon, Kenan Thompson, Ricky Martin, RuPaul, and Titus Burgess were among those who lampooned Hollywood in the song.

“We solved it!” Kristen Bell sang. “Banished every creep who broke the law! Now they’re serving hard time at that Arizona spa!”

“Look at us,” Sterling K. Brown sang. “We’re all different in the same way. We solved it! This room is so diverse. From Democrat to liberal Democrat, can I sing another verse?!”
