Paul McCartney Performs on Saturday Night Live (VIDEOS)

Paul McCartney was the musical guest on last night’s Saturday Night Live. Check out his performances, plus the touching cold opening from the New York City Children’s Choir. Comedy legion, and former SNL cast member, Martin Short was host.

Paul McCartney sings A relatively new song, “My Valentine”

Paul McCartney and the surviving members of Nirvana perform “Cut Me Some Slack.” This is even better than the 121212 Concert debut.

I don’t care what anybody says. I love “Wonderful Christmas Time” in all it’s glorious cheesiness! So there. Paul sings with a little help from the New York City Children’s Choir.

In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, The New York City Children’s choir performed “Silent Night” in the cold open. Touching, and very classy.

    Loved loved loved SNL last night. He can still RAWK. Dave Grohl: awesome.

    Paul with that triangle was so funny and cute.

    But, Martin Short had me in stitches. That doctor’s office Royalty Protocol sketch was hands down the funniest routine on that show in years.

    Paul McCartney is the BEST!  He brings a smile to my heart, every time he performs!  His live concert was one of the best concerts in my life!  He has so many hit songs to sing from The Beatles, Wings and he can sing anything well!

    Paul singing the Xmas song above is pure Love of Life!

    That was a very touching tribute from SNL for the Conn. shooting victims. Wonderful idea to have the NYC Children’s Choir perform Silent Night.

    I only see the second video, I will look for.
    I like when Paul makes energetic performances, but when the tender is my heart stops and I remember why I love his songs so much. Yes, I am an old woman, and I’m not ashamed! lol

     Very touching, indeed. Paul McCartney… not enough words to capture the depth of respect, awe and love I have for this artist.

    I love Sir Paul.  He’s a true survivor!

    Right after the Sandy Concert, I was listening to the radio and people were talking about the “older” rock singers and how HD TV wasn’t kind to them….it’s hard to realize these guys are like 70 y.o….I mean Mick, Roger, Peter, Eric….but they keep on rocking don’t they.

    My Valentine would have been a hit 30 years ago. Nowadays, impossible. I think the song didn’t even charted. Good for Sir Macca that he still making million because the youth like to hum the la-la-la-la of Hey Jude and his other wonderful tunes.

  • Anny_nanny

    “Sir Macca” making his million for the Wings and all that was after. Sony makes money for the Beatles for the most part. So sir Paul can’t even deny someone pull Beatles’ song-book.
    But I’m not worried, he figured out early enough in this business, good for him.

  • Leandro

    I agree with you, but actually, I was talking more about live shows. I mean, he fills stadiums wherever he goes. For the old rockers, shows are always the key to keep making millions.

    So, good for him 3x ;)

  • Anny_nanny

    I agree. I love his concerts and the audience attending the concerts – I’m see such a range of ages only on classical concerts. And everyone knows all the songs and singing along.
    I wish all young musicians and singers that they have the same audience.

  • Anny_nanny

    By the way, Paul pays for the execution of the songs of the Beatles as well – it’s funny, but as is.

    My husband and I have been talking about the “older rockers” and wondering what the music world will really be like when they are no longer around or decide to completely retire. I’m sure glad we have the ability to save any performances they do on television. I intend on keeping the 12/12/12 concert forever! Sir Paul was great on SNL, and overall, it was a very entertaining holiday episode.
