Brad Paisley teamed up with Pharrell Williams to sing “Here Comes the Sun,” on Sunday night and Beatles fans around the world were singing along. "The Night that changed America" program had artists lining up to sing hit after hit in honor of the British band. According to the CBS Express on Friday, the Imagine Dragons, John Mayer, Keith Urban, Ed Sheeran, Joe Walsh and Stevie Wonder all were scheduled to perform.
The biggest draw of the night had to be when former Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr took the stage. The moment had fans screaming for joy and the remaining living members of the British band seemed to enjoy pumping out the music for the audience.
It’s been 50 years since the band hit the stage of “The Ed Sullivan Show,” and the Beatles still seem to be the most popular musical act in America. Debuting with five songs, the artists captured the hearts of the young people and the rest is history.
The Grammy tribute reflected on the Beatles and the first time the British band was seen on television. The broadcast was timed to be exactly 50 years to the day, date and time of the original time the band was seen in America for the first time.
