When you think of The Beatles, the first band that pops into your head may not be the Eurythmics. But for the upcoming special, "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles," set to air Feb. 9 on CBS to mark the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ debut performance on The Ed Sullivan Show, the British duo will be taking center stage.
As Grammys exec producer Ken Ehrlich explains: “When it came around to booking this show, what I felt was important was to try and find those artists who not only would be able to interpret Beatles songs, but would also have an… understanding of what they meant.”
As some may recall, the Eurythmics had a cover of "Come Together" in the '80s (which you can listen to below). (Also worth remembering, all you naysayers, Lou Reed said that their cover of "Satellite of Love" was his favorite cover.)
This will be the first Eurythmics performance since the American Music Awards in 2005.
