Alicia Keys and John Legend teamed up to honor The Beatles during last night’s CBS special “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles,” which aired exactly fifty years after the Fab Four made their U.S. debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”
Seated at separate pianos, the R&B powerhouses put a soulful spin on the band’s 1970 classic “Let It Be,” receiving a standing ovation from the audience including Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
“Tonight I am an honorary Beatle! LOL!” tweeted Alicia, while Legend added, “i think i might have to add ‘let it be’ to the All of Me Tour set list.”
The star-studded tribute also featured performances from Pharrell and Brad Paisley, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, and more.
