What a disgrace to The Beatles that their music has to be covered by hacks like Maroon 5, John Mayer, and Katy Perry.

Where's A Day in the Life or Eleanor Rigby? Disgraceful.

This!^^^

Here's a novel idea:

How about let Lennon's sons sing a few songs, too!

Or is there still some sort of stupid feud going on???

John Mayer, I think is okay. Katy Perry no way..

And who in the hell is buying Ed Sheeran's music in the first place?!

The best Beatles are dead. They need to "Let It Be".

I am not impressed with this list of acts. As Dale Cooper, posted "Let It Be."

I'd like it better if they'd just play a complete tape of the Beatles' first two Ed Sullivan Show performances, maybe throw in the complete Washington D.C. show and call it good. Because in the end the actual Beatles are preferable to other people trying to play their songs, even former Beatles (but former Beatles are ok).

Why were there two takes of Stevie Wonder?
Also wasn't his song towards the beginning?

I thought it was a pretty good show - thought most of the performers did a nice job with the songs. of course they weren't going to sound like the Beatles but i thought there were some done really well
