Some of the greatest performers, comedians and artists appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. Sullivan is best known for introducing America to The Beatles, and sending the career of Elvis Presley into the stratosphere.
The legendary host had his favorites throughout his show, which began all the way back in 1948 and aired until 1971. Sullivan was known for his flubs and shaky stance on camera, but he always brought in the hottest performers showbiz had to offer, and plenty of them were musical artists.
