Paul McCartney: The former Beatle is now dealing with Heather Mills. We feel very sorry for him because of that.

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:

Wake Paul McCartney up when the uproar over Miley Cyrus is finished.

In London this week to perform a gig sponsored by BBC Radio, the legendary singer was asked about the 20-year old Twerking sensation and essentially replied with a yawn.

He doesn't see what the big deal is.

"I don't understand why everyone's saying, 'Ooh she shouldn't do that!' It is nothing we haven't seen before," McCartney said of Miley. "I mean, she's a young girl and these days, in that kind of field that she's in, there's a lot of noise."

And Cyrus has clearly risen far above the noise with her controversial antics.

Paul McCartney helped stage a Nirvana reunion last night in NYC.

During the 12-12-12 concert to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts in the region, McCartney recalled how "recently some guys asked me to jam with them."

Those guys turned out to be Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.

"The penny finally dropped that I was in the middle of a Nirvana reunion" he said before Nirvana's first-ever live performance of "Cut Me Some Slack" with Paul on vocals.

Watch their performance below!

Courtney Love, of course, was not a fan of McCartney standing in for Kurt Cobain ... although she said, "if it were John [Lennon] it would have been cool."

Come on. It's still kind of cool.

Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills said on Thursday that an infamous voicemail of hers was obtained illegally by Piers Morgan, now a talk show host on CNN.

Before winning Celebrity Apprentice as a non-celebrity and moving on to the job with CNN, Morgan spent years as a tabloid newspaper editor in Great Britain.

Mills' infamous voicemail of McCartney begging her for forgiveness was obtained illegally, she says. Morgan has boasted in the past of hearing the recording.

  • Morgan, Piers
  • Heather Mills' Bad Hair

Morgan has consistently denied he authorized the use of hacking in his tabloid days, but has not offered an explanation for how he came to hear the message.

The voicemail was left on Heather Mills' mobile phone.

The accusation has dragged Morgan back into the phone hacking scandal that damaged Rupert Murdoch's media empire and shut down The News of the World.

Giving evidence to an inquiry into British media ethics, Mills said she had left a house she shared with McCartney in early 2001 after they had had a fight.

She says she then turned her phone off, and the next morning, she had received 25 messages on her phone, all of which appeared to have been listened to.

Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell got married today in London.

The Beatles legend, 69, and New York businesswoman, 51, have been dating since 2007, after he divorced Heather Mills. They announced their engagement in May.

The couple were greeted with jubilation as they arrived at the Old Marylebone Town Hall, which was opened especially for the event. Here's a photo of the newlyweds:

Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell

Shevell wore a flower in her hair and long-sleeved, v-neck, knee-length ivory dress and shoes by her new stepdaughter, fashion designer Stella McCartney.

Stella, whose mother is the late Linda McCartney, Paul's wife of 29 years until her 1998 death, also made her dad's navy blue suit for the occasion.

McCartney's daughter with Mills, seven-year-old Beatrice, served as the flower girl. Shevell's college-age son, Arlen, was also in attendance at the affair.

Famous guests included Barbara Walters (a cousin of Nancy Shevell, interestingly), Paul's brother Mike, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison's widow, Olivia.

McCartney and Shevell waved to guests as they left the Town Hall amid a shower of rose petals tossed by guests. For all involved, it was a day to savor.

"It was terrific – thank you!" McCartney told the crowd, joking with fans that he felt "married" and asking reporters in jest, "What are you all doing here?"

Paul McCartney will wed fiancée Nancy Shevell at the same venue he married late wife Linda - Old Marylebone Town Hall, in London - it was revealed Friday.

The pair have posted a notice that they intend to get married there.

Earlier this week, the couple met with Superintendent Registrar Alison Cathcart, and the official notice - sometimes called banns - was made on Wednesday.

The actual wedding date has not been announced, but they may tie the knot as early as September 30, and there has been speculation they will wed in October.

Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell have been together since mid-2007.

The Beatles legend was married to the former Linda Eastman from 1969 until her death in 1998, then to Heather Mills in 2002 until their separation in 2006.

He went through financial Hell with Heather Mills, but Paul McCartney is ready to start fresh with Nancy Shevell.

Therefore, despite forking over $50 million to his ex-wife in a nasty, drawn-out divorce settlement, the iconic singer has made it clear to his loved ones: there will be no pre-nuptial agreement with new fiancee Nancy Shevell.

"His friends and business advisers think he's crazy after what happened with his ex, but Paul is insisting Nancy is no Heather," a source tells PopEater. "There's no need to make marriage a business arrangement."

Paul and Nancy

Shevell has quite a lot of money on her own, and she's been dating McCartney for four years. Even insiders that think the pair should sign some kind of document agree they make a "perfect couple."

"This one will last forever," a family friend says. "She is the opposite of Heather and hates the public spotlight, plus she doesn't need his money to live a great life."

Hey, McCartney and The Beatles said it themselves: all you need is love.
