The first three seasons of Glee all featured a Beatles song, and season five featured two entire episodes built on nothing but the Fab Four, complete with a soundtrack album that debuted in the Top 40. Season 7 of American Idol featured two Beatles-themed episodes (winner David Cook did "Day Tripper" and "Eleanor Rigby"), and Season 12 had one too. The Voice judges Shakira, Blake Shelton, Usher and Adam Levine joined forces to sing "With a Little Help From My Friends" in 2013. Paul wasn't on Dancing With the Stars, but his ex-wife Heather Mills was. And many headlines were made when Mad Men paid $250k to use "Tomorrow Never Knows" in an episode. "It was always my feeling that the show lacked a certain authenticity because we never could have an actual master recording of the Beatles performing," show creator Matthew Weiner told The New York Times. "Because they are the band, probably, of the 20th century."
