You want Beatles? It'll cost ya

In addition to Paul McCartney reuniting with Ringo Starr onstage for a half-Beatles reunion, Mr. Starr also performed his own song, "Photograph." Part of the deal to secure a sure-fire ratings draw? Perhaps. But considering Grammy producers would have moved heaven and earth (or at least offered up first-born children) to secure this performance, giving a few minutes to Ringo is probably the least they could do. The oddest thing is that neither Beatle performed any Beatles songs during the telecast. That would have required some kind of human sacrifice situation.
