THE BEATLES helped turn Tuesday night’s (11Mar08) AMERICAN IDOL into a ratings
spectacular as Fab Four fans tuned in to hear wannabes belt out hits like
ELEANOR RIGBY and IN MY LIFE.
After vying for the rights to perform Beatles songs on the TV talent show for
the past seven years, producers got the nod for this season and decided to turn
Tuesday night’s show into an-all Fab Four feast.
And to prove that Beatlemania is alive and well today, more than 31 million
people tuned in to watch finalists sing their favorite songs.
