"There's no 15-year old who doesn’t know who Prince is," Ken Ehrlich noted.
CBS will air Let's Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince on April 21, the fourth anniversary of the legendary musician's death. The show was filmed Jan. 28, two days after the 62nd annual Grammy Awards -- and before the novel coronavirus pandemic put such entertainment events on hold indefinitely.
Actress Maya Rudolph hosts the show, and also performs with her Prince cover band, Princess. The show also features performances by Beck, Gary Clark Jr., Common, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Foo Fighters, H.E.R., Juanes, John Legend, Chris Martin, Miguel, Morris Day And The Time, Sheila E., St. Vincent, Mavis Staples, the Revolution, and Usher, with special appearances by Fred Armisen, Naomi Campbell, Misty Copeland, FKA Twigs and Jimmy Jam.
Ken Ehrlich, who wrapped up a 40-year career as the Grammy Awards' producer or executive producer this year, served as executive producer of the special. In an interview with Billboard in the week preceding the Grammys, Ehrlich noted, "Prince is special. He probably did 12 TV appearances over his career. I did five of them. I think it's going to do very well because the audience that has grown around him since his death is equal to or greater than the audience that loved him when he was alive. There's no 15-year old who doesn’t know who Prince is."
