It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a year since the death of a true American idol, Whitney Houston. In a new one-hour special, fans get a behind-the-scenes look at how last year’s show was able to pull together the awards ceremony, and a last-minute tearful tribute to the fallen diva.
The GRAMMYs Will Go On: A Death In The Family, airs February 9 on CBS, documents the hours right before the show and features interviews with artists like LL Cool J, Katy Perry, Dave Grohl, Bruno Mars, Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Hudson, who sang I Will Always Love You to a teary-eyed crowd.
The special also includes never-before-seen rehearsal footage like Adele preparing for her first performance since undergoing vocal surgery and Paul McCartney practicing with his all-star band for the show’s finale. The whole idea started out as a 28-minute documentary called A Death in the Family: The Show Must Go On, which was housed at the GRAMMY museum as part of the Whitney! exhibit, which included stage costumes, photos and scrapbooks that were owned by the late singer.
Sounds like it will be a touching piece on the late singer. Where were you when you found out Whitney Houston died?
Watch the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards, February 10, at 8 pm EST on CBS.
