Billy Joel performed his newly released song, Turn The Lights Back On, at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards held on February 4, 2024, Sunday at the Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles.
As reported by PEOPLE, the legendary 74-year-old singer performed at the ceremony as one of the official performers of the award show.
The iconic musician was dressed in a leather jacket and sunglasses as he was joined on stage by an entire band that included several horn and string players for the performers while Joel himself played the grand piano.
Throughout the song, lights lit up increasingly as the stage came out of near darkness to technicolor which created an effect of resonance to the song's lyrics, where Joel reflects on his own legacy to his fans.
Following the performance, Joel received an outstanding response from the crowd where all of them gave him a standing ovation as he took a humble bow.
Before the five-time Grammy winning artist took the stage for his performance, a video of him and his Turn the Lights Back On co-writer, Freddy Wexler, was displayed.
In the video, the 37-year-old songwriter explained how the song took almost two years to make because he was “relentless" in getting the singer-songwriter back in the studio.
"The whole point of doing what I do was because it was so much fun to do when I first started. I kind of lost that after a while. Freddy got me to find the joy in it again," Joel said in the video.
The Vienna crooner also performed the closing song of the ceremony, his last performance, shortly after Taylor Swift won the Grammys for Album of the Year. Joel returned to the stage and performed a rocking rendition of his classic song; You May Be Might.
Billy Joel was announced as one of Recording Academy’s official performers last week, alongside other A-list performers like Billie Eilish, Burna Boy, Dua Lipa, Luke Combs, Olivia Rodrigo and Travis Scott.
