Music’s biggest night is turning 60 and to celebrate this milestone, The Recording Academy will present a Grammys retrospective primetime special looking back on some of the award show’s most memorable moments.
“Grammys Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special,” which will air on November 24 from 9 – 11 p.m. on CBS, will take a behind-the-scenes look at the past 59 years of Grammys performances and history. Special segments will include reactions from Grammy producers and members of the music community following the tragic loss of Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin’s unexpected opera performance at the 40th Annual Grammy Awards, and Paul McCartney bringing the Beatles’ legendary album, “Abbey Road,” to the Grammy stage. The program will also feature archival footage, exclusive interviews, and special appearances from Grammy winners like Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige, Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Dave Grohl, Elton John, Bruno Mars, Chris Martin, Paul McCartney, Ed Sheeran, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, U2, and Keith Urban.
“As we approach this milestone in Grammy history, we are excited to give music fans a glimpse into what artists, musicians, producers, set designers, and others do to make those unforgettable Grammy moments,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “This special will take audiences on a new journey as they relive those extraordinary moments that can only be seen on the Grammys.”
