The Rolling Stones duet with American Idol singer Carrie Underwood
The reality show winner joined the band onstage in Toronto last night
The legendary group, who are currently on a world tour, welcomed the former American Idol winner on for a duet of 'It's Only Rock'n'Roll', continuing a run of special guests that has also included the likes of Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani, Dave Grohl and Tom Waits.
Tweeting before the gig, guitarist Ronnie Wood was obviously enthusiastic about the collaboration, whilst Underwood also expressed her delight on the internet, stating "8 years ago today, I won @AmericanIdol and tonight, I sang with the @RollingStones! Wow, so much has happened! #Thankful"

Earlier in the week, Mick Jagger also stated that he would be "camping out at Glastonbury all weekend" when the group headline the festival next month, but ruled out the possibility of a fan-curated set either there or at any of their other forthcoming gigs. After asking fans what songs they wanted to hear via the group's Twitter page, the singer then clarified his findings to Q, explaining that he would not necessarily be paying heed to the responses as "with Twitter you get so much more feedback. But the kind of people who tweet about songs are not your general fan. Not everyone wants obscure songs."
The Rolling Stones are set to headline Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage on Saturday, before playing two London shows in Hyde Park on July 6 and July 13.
