Specials on Whitney Houston Ahead of Tonight’s Grammy Awards

The day-long coverage of the death of Whitney Houston will culminate on CBS tonight with the Grammy awards where there will be a simple tribute to Houston who died yesterday in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel. The Grammy’s opened with Bruce Springsteen singing his new single, “We Take Care of Our Own.” Host LL Cool J then opened the  show with a prayer, and a video tribute of Houston singing “I Will Always Love You” from an earlier Grammy awards ceremony.

Just before the Grammy’s, on “60 Minutes” Anderson Cooper led off his interview with singer Adele with the news of Houston’s death. Meanwhile on NBC, “Dateline” was devoting an hour to Houston and on CNN, Don Lemon, who anchored breaking coverage last night from Atlanta, anchored an hour-long special from Los Angeles which included a live news conference from the LA County chief coroner.

Fox News’s “Geraldo At Large” will dedicate much of his show tonight to coverage of Houston’s death.

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced tonight it will air “Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview” Thursday at 9pmET/PT. The special will include Houston’s final in-depth interview, which first aired on Winfrey’s daytime show in September, 2009.

CBS Scoops Itself, As Adele Sings for Anderson Cooper

Tonight CBS will televise the Grammy Awards, which will feature a tribute to Whitney Houston, a new song from Bruce Springsteen and  the long-awaited return of Adele, who hasn’t sung since the Fall due to vocal chord surgery. Right before the Grammys CBS will air a new episode of “60 Minutes,” in which Anderson Cooper profiles the singer.

Friday morning “CBS This Morning” previewed the piece, and ended up scooping itself, as Adele sang “Rolling in the Deep” a capella for Cooper. In other words, Adele’s first public song was not on the Grammys, or even “60 Minutes,” but “CBS This Morning.”
