Music fans will be cozied up by the TV tonight to watch the 56th annual Grammy Awards, broadcast live from LA. Not only will fans be sitting on the edge of their seats in anticipation of who will win the coveted award, but they will also be poised to see and hear some top-notched performances that are creating a lot of buzz.
Sunday is a big Nielsen ratings night for the popular TV show, Downton Abbey, but producers of the awards show are hoping to attract more viewers by including some exciting collaborative performances like Jay-Z and Beyonce; Robin Thicke and Chicago; and yes, a Beatles reunion with Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney. The remaining members of the ’60s band will take the stage to perform in a tribute to commemorate the British rockers’ first performance on The Ed Sullivan Show 50 years ago.
And the fun won’t stop there. The celebration will continue on Monday with a star-studded concert called, “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.” Performers will include Alicia Keys, John Legend and John Mayer, all of whom, ironically, won more Grammys than the Beatles ever did.
If you’re in LA and you don’t have tickets to either event, we recommend exploring LA and its amazing attractions like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Universal Studios, J. Paul Getty Museum and the Santa Monica Pier.
