Taylor Swift, Jimmy Fallon, Paul McCartney, The Blues Brothers (Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi), and Prince were among the stars who rocked on at an after-party for Sunday’s “SNL 40: Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary” special at the Plaza Hotel in New York. Fallon, serving at the party’s emcee, jammed with McCartney, Swift and The Blue Brothers and also introduced Prince, who performed with Maya Rudolph as she impersonated Beyonce. Watch the videos below.

After McCartney performed “Maybe I’m Amazed” and Swift did a cameo in “The Californians” sketch during the special, they hopped on stage at the after-party, where Swift sang “Shake It Off.” And Prince’s jamming got everyone from Bill Murray to Chris Rock grooving.

Gossip Cop hears among others who sang included, Ariana Grande, Michael Bolton, Debbie Harry and Miley Cyrus, who during the live show did an fantastic job on the song, “50 Ways To Leave Your Lover.” Grande performed the Aretha Franklin classic “Respect.” Overall, we’re told it was an amazing party that lasted until 4 a.m.
