Throughout the week the Late Show with David Letterman has been celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show by having its musical guests play covers from the Fab Four's catalogue of songs. Last night The Flaming Lips, joined by John Lennon's son Sean, performed an absurdly fitting rendition of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band's "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," complete with raining glitter, glowing tubes, and Wayne Coyne on a pedestal looking like a shimmering peacock.
