Last year, the Grammys were rocked by the passing of Whitney Houston less than 24 hours before the event.
Now, with the Grammys coming up this Sunday, it’d be impossible to not revisit that moment.
CBS will be airing an hour-long special, The Grammys Will Go On: A Death in the Family, on Saturday night with Taylor Swift, LL Cool J, Bruce Springsteen, Jennifer Hudson and many others talking about suddenly losing the legend.
The special will also include a first look at show producers trying to rework the event in order to pay tribute to the one and only Whitney.
We know where we’ll be Saturday night.

Who could make you star struck when you already have LL Cool J in the fam?
That's easy- Oprah Winfrey!
The OWN host stopped by the Js' (not what they're called) house to chat recently, and LL shared this pic. He tweeted:
So what is the Next Chapter for LL?
Well, we don't want to spoil it, but it involves NCIS, criminals, and some advice his mama gave him many years ago re: knocking them out.

Look at her go! LOL!!
Wednesday night, LL Cool J asked Taylor Swift to beatbox for him while he sang/rap at the Grammy Nomination Concert.
Ch-ch-check it ouuttt (above)!
A lil' hesitant at first, Swifty obliged but was the first to say what we were all thinking… they definitely won't be winning the gold for this collaboration! Ha!
A+ for effort, though! And hey, does anybody really look cool beatboxing??

It's been four long years, but Taylor Swift is finally back where she belongs- with LL Cool J!
The Safe & Sound singer will once again co-host CBS' Grammy Nominations Live! special! She and LL shared the hosting duties back in 2008, but Taylor has been a little busy since then.
Not to mention it's a little awkward to host when you're the one getting all the Grammys!
Luke Bryan and Maroon 5 are scheduled to play the event, which will be filmed in Taylor's old stomping grounds of Nashville, Tennessee!
Taylor may have thought We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, but LL Cool J knew she couldn't avoid Doin' It forever!
The show will air on December 5 at 10 PM Eastern!

LL Cool J went back to the Deep Blue Sea to knock another bad guy out.
But this time - it was strictly for television!!!
For the show NCIS Los Angeles if you wanna be all exact about it.
The rapper/actor returned to the public limelight for the first time since his infamous beat down of the home intruder.
The incident will forever be burned in our memories that when push comes to shove - LL Cool J is still one bad mother-shut-your-mouth!
