One of the most-anticipated performances at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards was the rare collaboration of former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

The two music legends performed for the first time together in years on the GRAMMYs stage on McCartney’s new song “Queenie Eye.”

The mini-Beatles reunion featured Paul on his rainbow-colored piano while Ringo jammed along in his original spot behind the kit. The duo’s performance prompted a standing ovation and plenty of dancing and swaying along from famous faces in the crowd including Paul’s wife, Joe Walsh, and even Yoko Ono.

The night also marked a major milestone for Paul, who took home five GRAMMY awards, his biggest win ever at the ceremony. According to his official website, Paul won awards for Best Rock Song for “Cut Me Some Slack” which he co-wrote with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear; Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package for his ‘Wings Over America’ re-issue; Best Surround Sound Album for ‘Live Kisses’; and Best Music Film for ‘Live Kisses’.

Paul and Ringo were also awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by Julia Roberts and accepted by Ringo.

The two will reunite once more on Monday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their historic Ed Sullivan Show performance for the taping of The Night That Changed America: A Grammys Salute to The Beatles, which will air on Feb. 9 on CBS.
