British synthpop duo Eurythmics will reunite to pay tribute to The Beatles in a special Grammys show.
Marking the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ debut performance on The Ed Sulluvian show, the special — titled, The Night That Changed America: The Grammys Salute to The Beatles — will see band members Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart come together to perform some of Beatles' biggest hits in their own style.
The duo, who sold millions of albums in the 1980s and whose hits include “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)," disbanded in the 1990s. The pair went on to forge successful solo careers, though they continue to collaborate occasionally.
The unusual choice was not lost on Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, who explained his decision in an interview.
"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," he said.
The special will include more than a dozen performances, including a duet by John Mayer and Keith Urban of “Don't Let Me Down." Alicia Keys and John Legend will pair up on “Let It Be" and Maroon 5 is also reportedly hitting the stage.
More performers will be announced at a later date. The special is scheduled to air on Feb. 9 on CBS.
