This year’s Grammy Awards ceremony will pay tribute to the Beatles this year, which marks the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s culture-altering trip to America. Not only will the band be given a Lifetime Achievement Award at the ceremony, but surviving members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have also been confirmed to perform at the ceremony itself.
The Grammy appearance marks a first for Starr, who surprisingly has never performed at the Grammy Award ceremony before. McCartney comes into the ceremony as a nominee: “Cut Me Some Slack,” his collaboration with the surviving members of Nirvana, has been nominated for Best Rock Song.
Other Grammy performers that were confirmed today include country stars Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and Kacey Musgraves, all of whom will be up for awards on the night. They join Chicago, Stevie Wonder, Daft Punk, Imagine Dragons, and a country supergroup consisting of Blake Shelton, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, and Willie Nelson.
The Grammy Awards will air on CBS on January 26th.
