Yoko Ono was one of the presenters at the 56th Grammy Awards ceremony, held Sunday at Los Angeles’ Staples Center and broadcast on CBS.

Ono presented the Album of the Year award for “Random Access Memories” to the French electronic music duo Daft Punk along with their team and contributors, including Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Paul Williams and Pharrell Williams.

“It was so great to present you with this award, and I love dancing to your wonderful music,” Ono posted on her Facebook page.

Ono and her son, Sean Lennon, could also be seen dancing to former Beatle Paul McCartney singing “Queenie Eye” with former Beatle Ringo Starr on drums.

On Saturday, Ono represented her late husband, John Lennon, at the Recording Academy’s Special Merit Awards ceremony at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre. A lifetime achievement award for the Beatles was accepted by Starr, Ono and Olivia Harrison, George Harrison’s widow. McCartney was unable to attend as he was rehearsing for the Grammy program.

“I’m here today because I think John would have wanted me to be here,” said Ono, 80.

Lennon died in December 1980 at the age of 40 after being shot by a deranged fan.
