Stars Announced For CBS Beatles Tribute Special
The first performers have been announced for CBS' upcoming Beatles tribute, The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles. The Eurythmics -- Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart -- will reunite for one night only, with the show also featuring appearances by Alicia Keys with John Legend, Maroon 5, and a special team-up of John Mayer and Keith Urban. Other performers are expected to be announced soon.
 
The Night That Changed America, celebrates the Beatles' career and the 50th anniversary of landing in America and first appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show. The show will tape on Monday, January 27th, the day after The 56th Annual Grammy Awards, and will be broadcast on CBS on Sunday, February 9th at 8 p.m. ET/PT -- exactly 50 years to the day, date, and time of the "Fab Four's" original Sullivan Show appearance.
 
Billy Joel admits that he became a die-hard Beatles fan from the moment they landed in America: "One of the things I loved about the Beatles -- I never knew what they were gonna come up with next. I kind of grew up with the Beatles, from year to year; they went from Beatles '65, then they went to Rubber Soul -- they just grew and grew and changed, and it was magical. I was enchanted."
