Maroon 5, John Mayer and Alicia Keys will perform, and pioneering ’80s pop duo Eurythmics will reunite, for the upcoming CBS TV special The Night that Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles, which will be taped January 27, the day after the Grammy Awards.
The special, which looks back on the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ historic appearance on the legendary variety program The Ed Sullivan Show, will feature top artists performing the songs that the Beatles performed that night, as well as other Beatles songs through the years.
On the show, John Mayer will team up with Keith Urban for a special performance, while Alicia Keys will team with John Legend. Maroon 5 will perform by themselves, and Eurythmics Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart are billed as reuniting for “one night only.” The duo is best known for their hits “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” “Here Comes the Rain Again” and “Would I Lie to You.”
More performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks. The Night that Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles will air February 9 at 8 p.m. ET, which is the exact day and time that the original Ed Sullivan Show performance aired.
