The Ed Sullivan Show: Top 10 Musical Performances
“The Ed Sullivan Show” ran from June 20th, 1948 until June 6th, 1971, and in that time the show featured comedians, circus performers, actors and more. However, what Ed Sullivan was most adept at doing was discovering up-and-coming musical talent and bringing that to American homes. Acts like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, the Jackson 5 and many other made memorable appearances on the show, and charmed all of America in the process. Others, like The Doors and The Rolling Stones, were less gracious to their host – but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a “really big show.” In this video, WatchMojo.com counts down the Top 10 Musical Performances from "The Ed Sullivan Show."
