Executive producer hints of Beatles surprise at Sunday's Grammys

Longtime executive producer of the Grammy Award Ken Ehrlich told in an interview Jan. 24 that the show is being deliberately vague about what the two Beatles will do Sunday night at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony.

“We’re not saying much and it’s purposeful. The way it came together was, as you know, the night after the Grammys we’re taping a two hour special that will air on the actual fiftieth anniversary of when The Beatles were on Ed Sullivan. So, when Paul and Ringo agreed to be a part of that show, and obviously both Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison are coming in for that as well, we said, “Well, let’s talk about the Grammys.”

Ehrlich said that with McCartney nominated for Grammy Awards and the Beatles' Lifetime Achievement Award, which they are being honored with today, “It all fit together. It was about figuring out performances.

"We’re going to leave the rest of it open to the public’s imagination.”
