Their influence on the music industry is felt to this very day, and The Beatles will be celebrated with a new special called “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.”

Slated to air on Sunday, February 9th, 2014, the program will honor the iconic band on the 50th anniversary of their debut performance in the USA on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

CBS Entertainment VP Jack Sussman noted, “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.”

"As the Grammy Awards are music’s biggest night, 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,” added Grammy Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow.
