Can it really be almost a year since we lost Whitney Houston? The Grammys still went on the next day after losing the music legend, but a new special entitled "The Show Will Go On: A Death In The Family" will show what changes and tributes were made due to Houston's passing.
The show will air on Saturday night Feb. 9th and will be an hour tribute to the songstress airing at 10 P.M.
They will be showing never before seen rehearsal footage from those performances and behind the scenes interviews with Grammy artists talking about Whitney.
The special also includes personal accounts of the day's occurrences and Whitney Houston's passing by Clive Davis, Dave Grohl, Jennifer Hudson, host LL COOL J, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift, and Joe Walsh.

Diagnosis: Rihanna has 5 Grammy's. Taylor Swift has 6. Says a lot.
Miley will play the love interest of Jake (Remember him? The half man of the show so to speak who was non-existent last year.) for at least 2 episodes.
We sure Angus T. Jones who plays Jake is excited. We are sure Ashton Kutcher will be happy too, as his real life girlfriend Mila Kunas will be on the show as well.
Will U be watching?
Do U still watch the show since Charlie Sheen left?-DocFB

The show will be hosted by LL Cool J, will be licking his lips 2 times every 10 seconds while talking and perhaps 5 times while introducing Katy.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Looks like a good line-up....so far.....
Ludacris, a 3 time Grammy winner, will join Grammy winner Lupe Fiasco, and Grammy winning dup Sugarland as they have been added to the list of performers for the Grammy Nomination special which airs live on CBS November 30th.
They join Lady Gaga and Jason Aldean, who were announced last week.
LL Cool J will be hosting the special again this year.
There will be even more performers announced and special guest presenters as well.
This is the 4th year the nominations have been announced like this.
The Grammys will air live on Feb. 12th, 2012.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Should the announcement special have its own special?
Lady Gaga was announced as a performer on the Grammy Nomination Special that will air on Wednesday, November 30th on CBS.
Along with Lady Extravaganza and Jason Aldean are the first two to be announced for the special.
We have a feeling that Gaga will perform "Marry The Night" her latest song and she has filmed an upcoming video, which the photo above is from her shooting the video in L.A. She also filmed more portions of the video in New Jersey earlier this month.
Well, we will be watching the Grammy special now to see Gaga's performance for sure.-DocFB
