Watch Paul McCartney Front Nirvana, Chris Martin Duet With Michael Stipe, and Kanye West at the 12-12-12 Benefit

Last night’s 12-12-12 Sandy benefit saw Kanye West wearing a leather skirt, Coldplay‘s Chris Martin almost looking bashful as R.E.M.‘s Michael Stipe joined him for a duet, and, yes, Paul McCartney fronting Nirvana to perform a new song written by the surviving members, “Cut Me Some Slack”. Of course, Courtney Love was regally “not amused,” as she told TMZ.

Check out footage of all three performances below.
