Live from New York, it's a miraculous comeback!

An emotional Tracy Morgan returned to "Saturday Night Live" for the first time since cheating death in a devastating wreck on the New Jersey Turnpike that killed his mentor and fellow comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair and left Morgan in a coma for eight days.

"People are wondering, can he speak? does he have 100% mental capacity? but the truth is, I never did!" Morgan 46, joked. " I might actually be a few points higher now!"

Morgan said he asked "SNL" boss a few months ago if he could host the show when he got better and thanked his "comedy family" for their support.

It was a star-studded return to "SNL" for Morgan who spent eight seasons as a cast member on the sketch comedy show from 1996 to 2003. He is also known for his starring role on "30 Rock."

Longtime pals, Alec Baldwin, and Larry David appeared in the show's opening sketch as politicians Jim Webb and Bernie Sanders.
