Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited on stage for a special performance at the Grammys.

The Beatles superstars performed Sir Paul's song Queenie Eye to a rapturous crowd, including Yoko Ono, at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.

McCartney also proved members of the Fab Four can still trump the Rolling Stones when his collaboration with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear, Cut Me Some Slack, beat Doom And Gloom by the veteran British band.

 

Achievement

He also won the Grammy for best long-form music video for Live Kisses.

Earlier, Julia Roberts announced the band will receive the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award next month.

It was a triumphant night for British artists at the American awards show.

Previous Grammy winner Adele won best song written for visual media for Skyfall, Ozzy Osbourne's Black Sabbath won best hard rock/metal performance for God Is Dead and the Rolling Stones tied for the historical album with Charlie Is My Darling, from a documentary almost 50 years ago.
