I'm not a weekly watcher in the least, but since Lennon/McCartney songs will be tonight's theme, I thought we could discuss some of the performances here once they're on Youtube.

Should be an interesting night... ugh, I cringe when I hear someone as vile as Ryan Seacrest say, "The BeEtles!"

Damn, I'm actually tempted to watch it now. How do you pronounce a capital 'e'?

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

a-hard-days-night-paul-3 Didgeridoos and bagpipes?! At least it made for an interesting evening…

I haven't watched AI in a long time, but it seems that every time they have a Lennon-McCartney night, someone sings Let it Be, The Long And Winding Road, and Hey Jude… snoooooooze. Show offs.

The three who sang John songs were all pretty good, I thought. I kinda dug that chick who did Come Together. Not bad. She did have a Bonnie Raitt feel. And the dude who did Jealous Guy… he was kinda cool, I'm embarrassed to admit. And an out-of-the-box choice… gotta give him props for that, at the very least.

He indeed did to the song justice:

The only other one  liked was the one you mentioned, Come Together. The others were heinous! I mean, I could have named the songs everyone would perform before mentioning them- same old, same old. Not that they're bad songs (impossible!) but they're the only songs the once-in-a-while listener knows.
Though, now that I think of it, the Can't Buy My Love guy wasn't terrible...

He did a good job. Too bad they don't have time for the full song.
