According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS and The Recording Academy have announced a one-hour special on the making of 2012's Grammy Awards show. Among other behind-the-scenes footage, the documentary will feature how the team was able to pull together a Whitney Houston tribute with less than a day's notice.
"I don't want to say it unmasks everything, but it does take a look at everything you don't get to see," Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich said. "All of the footage came in after the fact. We didn't mean to do this ahead of time."
