Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to play live together

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are to perform together at this year's Grammy Awards.

McCartney has been nominated for a number of awards, including Best Rock Song for "Cut Me Some Slack" with Dave Grohl and Krist Noveselic, whilst Starr will be honoured with the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award at the ceremony.

The news comes two months after the Grammys announced that a prime-time television special, The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles, would air on February 9, exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their US television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. It is not yet known if Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr will feature in the programme.
