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:

Ted Nugent takes exception to Stevie Wonder's proposed boycott of Florida due to the recent George Zimmerman verdict ... to put things mildly.

The rocker, who previously lauded the jury's decision and what he called the true lesson of the verdict, says he finds Wonder's idea "brain-dead."

"You've got to be kidding me," he said.
