Paul McCartney and Paul Simon both performed at the special Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary show on Sunday night, and even did a short duet.

McCartney and Simon, both frequent gests on the show, made a brief cameo during SNL 40‘s Hosts monologue before performing separately later on. During the monologue, Steve Martin was joined by an array of previous hosts – including Tom Hanks, Peyton Manning and Chris Rock – to debate who made the best hosts. McCartney and Simon tried to make a case for “musicians named Paul,” and performed a short duet of the Beatles’ classic “I’ve Just Seen A Face,” but were sent packing. “Told you we should’ve done ‘Sound of Silence,’” joked Simon as they walked off stage.
