Iconic '80s duo Eurythmics has confirmed reunion plans in order to pay tribute to possibly the ultimate music greats - the Beatles.
Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will hit the Los Angeles Convention Center stage on January 27 as a part of "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles" event, taking place a day after the Grammy Awards ceremony.
"When it came around to booking this show, what I felt was important was to try and find those artists who not only would be able to interpret Beatles songs, but would also have an understanding of what they meant," said longtime Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich.
Apart from Eurythmics, the night's headliners include Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Keith Urban, John Legend and Maroon 5. As the official announcement reads, the event will be taped and broadcasted on CBS on February 9.
The specific tune the duo will perform remains unknown at the moment. However, it was confirmed that Alicia Keys and John Legend will team up to deliver "Let It Be," while John Mayer and Keith Urban will join forces on "Don't Let Me Down" cover.
As for the main ceremony, some of this year's Grammy Award nominees include Black Sabbath, Queens of the Stone Age, Dream Theater and more. Full details here.
