Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr Reunite for A Salute to The Beatles

by at . Comments

Five decades after changing the music scene forever, The Beatles brought artists from a variety of genres together last night.

Exactly 50 years to the date after John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr debuted on The Ed Sullivan Show, CBS aired "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles."

It featured such acts as Maroon 5, Stevie Wonder and Katy Perry, all paying tribute to the legendary band via covers of their greatest hits.

And the event concluded with the group's two surviving members, McCartney and Starr, singing a duet of "Hey Jude."

We have no idea why Justin Bieber wasn't invited to participate, but take in a number of memorable performances from the evening now:

The way it should be done with flaming intelligence ,fun, talent and originality. Ringo was a blast and Paul a powerhouse of music. I'm so tired of the lame, same-old black / rap influence on so much of music today and I'm tired of sick-minded negativity and outright slutty behavior in the music industry too - it's so lame. LAME. People like Miley, beyonce, madonna all look even worse compared to groups with character and real talent like the Beatles. The 60's were the real deal, and a lot of what came shortly after.
There is an evil and an illness on the music scene these days. Same for TV and the movies. Rise above it don't get caught in

I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, >>>>>>>> Y­E­L­L­W­O­R­K.­­ℭ­­Oℳ
