NEW YORK - The Eurythmics are reuniting to pay tribute to the Beatles.

The Recording Academy announced that Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will perform as a duo for "The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles." The event will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Jan. 27, a day after the Grammy Awards.

Longtime Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, who is producing the Beatles special, thought the Eurythmics would be ideal to honor the iconic group.

The Eurythmics, who sold millions of albums and whose hits include "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)," released their debut in 1981. Ehrlich said Lennox and Stewart, who have launched successful solo careers, are thrilled to perform in tribute to the Beatles.

Ehrlich wouldn't say which Beatles tune the British duo would perform, but 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 on "Let It Be."

The special will air on CBS on Feb. 9, exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their U.S. debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
