Katy Perry performed the classic hit song “Yesterday” by The Beatles at the 50th Anniversary tribute show. Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson seemed completely into Perry’s performance as she sang with a great deal of emotion.
Unfortunately, many fans of The Beatles were not happy with Perry’s rendition of the song. Have a look at some of their disapproving tweets below:
