Ringo Starr made a surprise appearance at the Grammy Awards in LA on Sunday night.
Ringo took to the stage during the live telecast to present the final trophy of the evening, the award for Record of the Year.
‘After a year when we’ve all been zooming in and zooming out, it’s great to be here. In fact, it’s great to be anywhere,’ he quipped.
Ringo, who lives in LA with his wife Barbara Bach, will release a new EP Zoom In on Friday as well as his new book, Ringo Rocks: 30 Years of the All Starrs 1989-2019.
The legendary drummer looked fabulous with his dyed dark hair and neatly trimmed beard.He wore a black t-shirt with a rainbow-hued peace sign on the front and black drawstring pants with red stripes down the sides.He completed his ensemble with a black leather jacket and sported dark glasses.
Flashing his signature peace sign, Ringo shared he was ‘honored’ to be a part of the Grammys, which this year were held in a socially-distanced ceremony at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
‘I want to say this with peace and love to all of these gifted nominees: If you’re making music in our world today, you’ve already won. And I thank you,’ he said.
He then opened the purple envelope and announced the Record of the Year winner as Billie Eilish for Everything I Wanted.
Billie and brother Finneas appeared shocked when Ringo announced the winner and seemed a little overcome to be on stage with the legendary rock star.
