Grammys Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special, described as “an all-encompassing retrospective packed with epic moments from the past 59 years of Grammy history,” will be broadcast on Nov. 24, from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT, on the CBS Television Network.

The broadcast event will feature rare archival footage, exclusive interviews and special appearances by multi-Grammy winners Aretha Franklin, Dave Grohl, Elton John, Bruno Mars, Chris Martin, Paul McCartney, Ed Sheeran, Bruce Springsteen, Sting and U2, among others.

Grammys Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special, according to a press release, “will highlight some of the most memorable Grammy Moments from the last five decades of Music’s Biggest Night and take viewers behind the scenes to reveal unknown facts about the remarkable performances. 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.”

“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 Grammy’s greatest moments from more than 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.
