I don't think it will be televised live. Perhaps on delayed tape later. Of course, it may not have all those artists. But, you know Eric Clapton, Paul, Ringo, and Elton John will put on a very decent show and an adequate tribute - i do think sometimes TV adds younger artists for ratings and you wonder why they do that since most of the artists have little to do with what goes on.
