article imagePaul McCartney, Ringo Starr slated for Grammy performance

The Grammys have announced that two Beatles will be on hand at the upcoming award show on Jan. 26. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are in.
But, the question now is — are they performing together? As members of the Beatles, they will receive the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award. That award will be presented the night before the actual show.
The two have been announced as performers for the show. With most award shows, they trickle out the list of presenters and performers to maximize the headlines. Now, it was noted that they will be performing on the show, but not necessarily together. How can they not, right?
But, getting two Beatles is a big deal. That, and it is the 50th anniversary of their debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show." Special plans are made for that event as well. The Grammys are involved in one such event.
"The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles" is slated to celebrate the Beatles and commemorate the 50th anniversary of their first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show." The show will feature artists of today covering Beatles' songs.
The show will tape on Jan. 27, the day after The Grammys. CBS will air it exactly 50 years to the day, date and time of the original event, they noted in a release.
Perhaps related is the possibility of an appearance of McCartney and Starr on "The Late Show With David Letterman." His show is staged where Sullivan did his gig.
