Sunday, February 9 with The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles. Yup, see I got you stoked then dashed your enthusiasm in 2 sentences.
Oh Grammys how you suck with your biased and predictable awards and your bland ego driven show. But February 9, 1964 is a huge day in history- the day The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show!
“The Beatles are one of music’s most iconic groups, who won their first two Grammys, including one for Best New Artist, in 1964, the same year they took America by storm,’ said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. ‘As the Grammy Awards, it’s only fitting that we recognize this milestone moment in music history and pay tribute to this larger than life group and their enduring music and legacy.’
‘Whether you were alive to witness it on television that night, or you’ve just known about it all your life, that first television appearance by the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show is historic,’ said executive producer Ken Ehrlich of AEG Ehrlich Ventures. ‘To be able to celebrate this significant event 50 years later, and to the exact day, date, and time, with an all-star cast of Grammy participants shapes up to be one for the books.’
‘That night 50 years ago on the Ed Sullivan stage, the Beatles delivered a momentous performance, and America witnessed a historic television event and the beginning of a new era in music,’ said Jack Sussman, CBS Entertainment Executive Vice President of Specials & Events. ‘We are thrilled to honor these music legends with performances from amazing Grammy-winning artists who were influenced by the Beatles’ unforgettable music through the years and that incredible performance in 1964.’
I have intentionally deleted the trademark stamp from the word Grammy throughout this post- because its ridiculous.
