Sir Paul McCartney paid tribute to his Beatles bandmate John Lennon during an appearance on America's Saturday Night Live - just three days after the 30th anniversary of the legend's death.
The singer/songwriter was the star guest on Saturday's (11Dec10) show, and he used his appearance on the comedy series to remember Lennon, who was shot dead by crazed fan Mark Chapman outside his New York home on 8 December, 1980.
MCCartney performed the Beatles' A Day in the Life and sang Lennon's parts as well as his own - and then thrilled viewers with a cover version of his late bandmate's anti-war anthem Give Peace a Chance.
After the touching mini-set, the show cut to a still shot of MCCartney flashing the peace sign.
The show's host Paul Rudd looked moved by the performances and told the audience, "Well, this won't be topped", before MCCartney returned to the stage to sing Get Back as the credits rolled.
MCCartney also joined in with comedy scenes during his appearance on Saturday Night Live, teaming up with Rudd for the opening monologue, and later appearing in a fun digital short with Andy Samberg.
