The Recording Academy will extend the weekend’s activities with a one-hour special on February 9 entitled “The Grammys Will Go On: A Death in the Family.” The show looks at how Grammy producers, hosts and musical artists made last-minute changes? to the February 2012 program in the face of the death of Whitney Houston. The special will use never-before-seen rehearsal footage and behind-the-scenes interviews with artists and the Grammy production team to look at the 48 hours leading up to last year’s show, which was thrown into turmoil with Houston’s passing 24 hours before the telecast.
