Forgotten duets: When Billy Joel sang with Paul McCartney

This week in our 'Forgotten Duets' series, we won't be travelling back too far, but it's a cracker.

In 2008, Billy Joel performed a couple of huge gigs at New York's Shea Stadium, the venue most famous for staging arguably the first ever stadium rock concert from The Beatles back in 1965.

To the surprise of his many fans on one night, Billy brought out Sir Paul McCartney, so that he could sample that magic atmosphere once more.

The pair performed The Beatles' classic 'I Saw Her Standing There', which is always a crowd pleaser.

Not only that, but the gig was actually the last to be staged at Shea Stadium before it closed, making it even more special.

Paul later came on to play the last song of the night: 'Let It Be'. Watch the performance below:
