This year we celebrate The Beatles 50th anniversary of coming to America and officially changing the music landscape forever.

To commemorate the occasion, CBS held a tribute special on the same date and at the same time The Beatles first performed in the U.S. on the Ed Sullivan show.

The special, which included performances by Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and a host of other prominent artists like John Legend, Alicia Keys and Stevie Wonder aired Feb. 9 (TV Mix had a reporter inside. Read her account here).

As expected Twitter has the last laugh both about the special and The Beatles anniversary itself. Here are the best tweets curated by TV Mix:

It’s pretty obvious that Ringo was excited.

Guitar hero Peter Frampton was in disbelief.

While LL Cool J felt a little awkward.

Today’s pop-obsessed generation got a sense of what they’ll look like in 50 years.

While they also fought with their parents over who’s more famous. The Beatles or 1D?

Some comparisons should just never be made.

If The Beatles really led to the decline of family values we can’t say we’re mad about it.


Really… what do they teach kids in school these days?
