Paul McCartney at Barclays Center in 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)
Paul McCartney

We already knew that Daft Punk would be performing at the 56th Grammy Awards ceremony and that they're bringing Stevie Wonder, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers with them, and now the Grammy performances have gotten even more exciting.

SPIN reports that the closest thing we can get to a Beatles reunion will happen when Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr perform together at the ceremony. This could be even better than Sirvana.

Another exciting announcement that came a few days ago is that the Antarctic metal band Metallica (who have been promising new stuff) will perform too. Maybe they'll play some Beatllica?

Kendrick Lamar, who plays a Super Bowl weekend show, is performing too and other confirmed performers include John Legend, Macklemore, Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift, Lorde, and more.

And in other Beatles news, there had been talk, via Huffington Post, of Paul and Ringo reuniting at the Ed Sullivan Theater for a 'Late Show with David Letterman' episode to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first night the Beatles performed there, but a 'Late Show' rep said the show has no plans for a reunion at the moment, though confirmed that the show will recognize the anniversary.

Paul & Ringo performing together isn't exactly a rare occurrence.

Remember the time Nirvana and the Beatles joined forces to play that amazing song...wait...what was it called again? What did it sound like? Did anyone care?

Oh right, it was all an attempt to promote some shitty Dave Grohl project.

Keep on chokin' that Beatles chicken, Mac. I like you, but the ladder two Beatles, who are no longer with us, were the good ones.

It has become abundantly obvious that the Rolling Stones are indeed better then the Beatles.

Beatles were a terrible sung singer kids music band! Why do people still talk about them? Sgt pepper was barely psychedelic! Just toss some cheap reverb on garbage songs and all of a sudden it's an acid trip?? I DONT THINK SO!

While I agree that he doesn't sing "a" wake but rather "e" wake....singers often will adapt vowels for their own inflection....as vowels are "sung" where as constants aren't. I'm unsure if you could or should call it a mistake, but nevertheless, it was definitely one "kick ass performance"!! I'd love to attend one of these shows...but I have found out that tickets start at 6 grand a pop!! Wowsers!
