The special will be the Grammys “first all-encompassing retrospective packed with epic moments from the past 59 years of Grammy history,” according to CBS. It’s going to be a look behind the scenes of the last five decades of Grammy Award ceremonies, including the McCartney’s performance of the “Abbey Road” medley, which included Springsteen, Joe Walsh and Dave Grohl in 2012.
Other highlights will include a somber reflection by the music community following the death of Whitney Houston in 2012 and Franklin’s unexpected opera performance in 1998.

“Never before have we gathered all of the greatest moments of the Grammys, from 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 Grammys for the past 38 years, in a statement.
Springsteen and Stevie Van Zandt joined McCartney on stage at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Friday, Sept. 15. They performed “I Saw Her Standing There” twice, during the encore of McCartney’s One on One tour show.
