PAUL MCCARTNEY went above and beyond as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live over the weekend. Not only did he perform more songs than usual for a typical guest musician, he also popped up in a couple of other segments.
Sir Paul made his presence felt early on by interjecting during host PAUL RUDD's opening monologue. The actor was telling the audience how the fans outside the studio were chanting "Paul," thinking that they were shouting for him. Once McCartney walked onstage, he realized the chants were really directed at the former BEATLE.
McCartney later joined SETH MEYERS during "Weekend Update." They "imitated" PRINCE CHARLES and his wife CAMILLA as they commented on a photo of the latter two being attacked by protestors while in their car last week in England. McCartney also appeared in a digital short, singing a parody of the BERLIN hit "Take My Breath Away" and playing the harmonica.
As the musical guest, McCartney entertained the crowd with a few of his biggest hits from his days with the Beatles and WINGS, including "Jet," "Band on the Run" and "Get Back." As he has done on tour, he also squeezed in a medley of "A Day in the Life" and JOHN LENNON's "Give Peace a Chance," just days after the 30th anniversary of Lennon's death.
