For the past few years, CBS has aired annual Grammy TV specials devoted to the music of one artist, such as Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and The Bee Gees. But this year, the TV special will focus on the awards show itself, in honor of its 60th anniversary.
Grammys Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special will be a star-studded retrospective of the past 59 years of Grammy history. Among the Grammy-winners participating: 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, Keith Urban and more.
The special will feature archival footage, exclusive interviews and a behind-the-scenes look at some of the award show’s most memorable moments, including Aretha Franklin‘s opera performance as a last-minute replacement for an ailing Luciano Pavarotti in 1998, and a hasty tribute to Whitney Houston that was put together after she died the day before the Grammys in 2012.
Grammys Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special will air November 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
