Nobody wants to stand and clap with Paul McCartney at the Grammys

Emily St. James is a senior correspondent for Vox, covering American identities. Before she joined Vox in 2014, she was the first TV editor of the A.V. Club.

Sir Paul McCartney, former Beatle and nine-time nominee for the Grammy of Album of the Year, was really enjoying ELO's performance of "Evil Woman." So he decided to stand up and clap.

Nobody wanted to clap with him. So he took the hint and sat down.

It's okay, Sir Paul. We're with you! "Evil Woman" is a good song!

Later, ELO broke into "Mr. Blue Sky" with backing from Ed Sheeran. And Taylor Swift? She was into it.
