About

On January 15, 2014, Paul McCartney confirmed he would perform at the upcoming GRAMMY Awards. The 56th GRAMMY Awards had a lot to offer for Paul McCartney and his fans.

First, Paul McCartney was nominated for and won five Grammy Awards during that night:

Second, Paul McCartney was joined on stage by Ringo Starr to perform “Queenie Eye“, from the “NEW” album (the last time they performed together was in 2010 for Ringo’s 70th birthday). From E! Online, January 27, 2014:

The former Beatles mates both sat together with their wives in the audience, they also hit the stage together at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards for a performance that was never officially confirmed as in the works, but which was both hinted at and hoped for.

Earlier in the night, Ringo hopped onstage to perform “Photograph,” as various black and white, er, photographs flashed behind him, some of them of the Fab Four back in the day.

But then he was done, and there was no Paul, prompting the fear that their much-anticipated reunion wasn’t going to happen.

But when Paul finally took the stage (after a surprise introduction by Julia Roberts) to perform “Queenie Eye” and celebrate the lifetime achievement award the Beatles received during the pre-Grammys Special Merit Awards last night, he was joined by Ringo on drums.

Just like old times.

After wrapping up, the pioneering rockers took a bow hand-in-hand and shared a hug as the crowd gave them an enthusiastic standing ovation.

Third, the day after the Grammy Awards, a special event “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles” was held, with the participation, again, of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

It’s always great to see him, and playing with him is very special, you know, because of all the memories… I tell people, I remember the very first time he ever kind of sat with us, with the Beatles. It was like… the front line we liked to look at each other like… What’s going on here!? The man lifted to what it was about to become.
