Mick Jagger performs with Arcade Fire on Saturday Night Live

Mick Jagger was joined by Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters and Jeff Beck on the season finale of US comedy show Saturday Night Live.

Jagger performed three songs with Arcade Fire. They played a trio of The Rolling Stones' hits, including 'Ruby Tuesday', 'The Last Time' and 'She's A Rainbow'. You can watch a video of Jagger playing 'The Last Time' with Arcade Fire by scrolling down the page and clicking.

Along with being the host of the show, Jagger was also the musical guest and performed a medley of Rolling Stones songs with Foo Fighters, which included '19th Nervous Breakdown', and 'Tea Party' with Jeff Beck.

Jagger, who last hosted the show with the rest of The Rolling Stones in 1978, also got into the spirit of the show's notorious, wacky skits and played various characters throughout. Most notably, he portrayed a crazed Steven Tyler.

The show ended with a tribute to comic actress Kristen Wiig, who is said to be leaving the show. Arcade Fire and Mick Jagger played 'Ruby Tuesday' and 'She's A Rainbow' as a tearful Wiig danced with other members of the Saturday Night Live cast.

The Rolling Stones had been expected to celebrate their 50-year anniversary by embarking on a world tour later this year, but in March the band revealed that they would be delaying their live shows until 2013.
