Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart are slated to come together and perform once again as the Eurythmics for a segment on the CBS-TV special "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles," commemorating the Fab Four's first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" on Feb. 9, 1964.

"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," longtime Grammy Awards show producer Ken Ehrlich told CBS News.

Ehrlich also is overseeing the Beatles tribute show, which will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Jan. 27, the night after the 56th Grammy Awards show and using many of the performers who will be in town for the Grammys.

It will be the first time in nine years that Lennox and Stewart have performed together as the Eurythmics. It hasn't been specified what song the Eurythmics will sing. Other performers are still to be  announced.

"The Night That Changed America" is scheduled to air exactly 50 years after the Beatles' appearance, which also took place at 8 p.m. on a Sunday night, and also was carried on CBS.
