The first performances for "The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles" have been announced. Scheduled to perform are four-time GRAMMY winner Annie Lennox and GRAMMY winner Dave Stewart reuniting as Eurythmics for one night only; Alicia Keys with John Legend, Maroon 5, John Mayer, and Keith Urban.
The show will air Feb. 9 at 8pm — exactly 50 years to the day, date, and time of their groundbreaking first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”
Katy Perry says her new single with Snoop Dogg, “California Gurls,” is a West Coast answer song to Alicia Keys and Jay-Z's “Empire State Of Mind.” (The song debuted this week at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.) Perhaps a new West Coast/East Coast battle is brewing. But could Katy's spelling also be a nod to Big Star? “September Gurls” was one of the better-known songs by the band, led by recently passed cult figure Alex Chilton. What do you think: Is Katy a Big Star fan, or did she just misspell “Grrrls”?
Just the first paragraph from The Week In Music. Imagine how great the rest is.
