The 60th Annual Grammys will be held on January 28, 2018, and in honor of the milestone, CBS is airing a retrospective TV special about the award show.
Grammys Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special, a star-studded TV extravaganza looking back at 59 years of Grammy history, will air November 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. The two-hour program will include appearances from Paul McCartney, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Sting, among others.
The special will feature archival footage, exclusive interviews and a behind-the-scenes look at some of the award show’s most memorable moments and performances, including McCartney’s Abbey Road medley that also featured Springsteen, Joe Walsh and Dave Grohl at the 2012 ceremony, and Aretha Franklin‘s unexpected operatic performance from the 1998 event.
“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,” says Neil Portnow, the Recording Academy’s president and CEO.
“This special will take audiences on a new journey as they relive those extraordinary moments that can only be seen on the GRAMMYs.” Other stars who will appear on the special include Coldplay‘s Chris Martin, Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige, Celine Dion, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and Keith Urban.
