Last night marked the 50th anniversary of when the Beatles played on the Ed Sullivan Show. Although this famous 1964 performance wasn't their first television appearance, it was their first one in America.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr Interview With David Letterman

To mark the occasion, CBS held a special Grammy tribute to the Fab Four with some of the music industry's biggest stars covering their favorite Beatles song. David Letterman interviewed Ringo and Paul on the stage where it all began, which is now used as the set of The Late Show with David Letterman. In one video, Ringo reminisces about how big the theater looked then, and how small it looks now. In another video, Paul McCartney talks about his stage fright while he stood alone on the stage to perform "Yesterday." You can watch the videos above and below.
