Country superstar Taylor Swift was only a young girl when Whitney Houston‘s cover of Dolly Parton‘s’I Will Always Love You’ hit the radio soundwaves. At that young age, Swift couldn’t have imagined that almost two decades later, she’d help pay tribute to the legendary (and now late) Houston.

On Saturday, Feb. 9, the evening before the Grammys, CBS will air an hour-long special, featuring a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how Houston’s devastating death affected Music’s Biggest Night in 2012. ‘The Grammys Will Go On: A Death in the Family,” will include interviews with Swift, LL Cool J, Bruce Springsteen, Jennifer Hudson, and many other celebrity artists.

Last year, the Grammy producers learned of Houston’s passing less than 24 hours before the ceremony, and in this special, you’ll hear more about the mad scramble to revamp the show and pay tribute to the unforgettable star during the broadcast.

The ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ hitmaker isn’t the only one with deep respect for Houston, as Kelly Clarkson has openly spoken of her love for the powerhouse vocalist. Tune in on Feb. 9 for an opportunity to hear music’s biggest stars honor one of the best and brightest artists in history.
