Sweet dreams are definitely made for fans of the Eurythmics because it has been confirmed that the 80s duo will once again reunite in honor of the Beatles.

The Recording Academy announced today that Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will ‘come together’ as part of The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.

Longtime Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich, who also happens to be the one producing the special thought that the duo would be the perfect candidates to join in on the special event paying tribute to iconic and influential rock band. 

“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,” he revealed in a recent interview.

During the interview, Ehrlich didn’t reveal which Beatles song the Eurythmics would be performing during the special, but he did reveal which songs other performers taking part in the special will perform. John Mayer and Keith Urban will pair up to perform “Don’t Let Me Down,” while Alicia Keys and John Legend will perform a duet version of “Let It Be.” Maroon 5, alongside a dozen other artists are scheduled to perform on the special.

The special will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 27, a day after the Grammy Awards while the special will air on CBS, February 9, exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their U.S. debut on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Ehrlich also wouldn’t confirm if Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr will attend the special.

So which song do you guys think or hope the Eurythmics will perform during the special?

    • Don’t laugh, but when my brother and I were like five, she freaked us out, the power of 80s fashion, I guess. Fast forward 20 years later and I think she’s so amazing and unique, not afraid to be herself and that’s something to look up to.
