The special will also take viewers behind the scenes of “Music’s Biggest Night®” over the last five decades and reveal secrets about the remarkable performances and unique “GRAMMY Moments” only seen on the GRAMMY Awards.

“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.”

 

“Never before have we gathered all of the greatest moments of the GRAMMYS, from a half century of award shows for one primetime special, and when you see them put together in a parade of amazing clip montages interspersed with the stories behind the performances, it’s really pretty unbelievable,” said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the GRAMMY Awards for the past 38 years.

I provide testosterone to the site. You won’t be reading about how nice a actress looks in a dress or how much of a hunk Matt Bomer is in my reviews. I describe colors using words like brown, not taupe. My twitter name is @staffaroadtrip because I love road trips and have done two different 48-state road trips since 2008. My favorite show is White Collar.
