The Beatles tribute was a memorable Grammys moment

Sting, Dave Matthews, Vince Gill, and Pharrell Williams (Beatles tribute) Turns out randomly picking musicians’ names out of a hat is NOT the best way to pay tribute to rock’s most influential band. This unfab four played an awkward, shockingly amateurish version of ”I Saw Her Standing There,” complete with an especially frog-voiced Matthews screwing up the lyrics (it’s not ”I saw her dancing there,” dude). Then Sting, of all people, struggled with the high notes. The ”She Bangs” guy from ”American Idol” was less painful.
