Every year, we anticipate what will be the signature moment during The Grammy’s but we really don’t know who is the mastermind behind these signature moments. Well, veteran Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich is the man behind the Grammy’s! He joined the Grammy team in 1980, when he produced the 22nd Grammy Awards. He was the one who paired Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand to perform “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers”; Eminem and Elton John; Prince and Beyonce; as well as many others. With Grammy weekend approaching us, it was recently announced that Ken Ehrlich will be producing the next 3 years of the Grammy Awards through The Recording Academy.
“Ken is not just a producer, but a true creative visionary who summons the power of live music and television in a way that allows him to transport audiences, both in the house and in their living rooms,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “He has played a critical role in shaping the GRAMMY Awards over the past 37 years, and we’re proud to announce our continued partnership, and excited to see what he’ll do next.”
“Every year, Ken manages to come up with amazing pairings, great production surprises, and an uncanny ability to cover the breadth of our diverse musical landscape, and we are excited about the prospect of continuing to call on Ken for those moments,” added Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment. Since 1973, the CBS Television Network has been the television home of the GRAMMY Awards.
Make sure you tune in to the 59th Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 12th, at 8pm EST on CBS. Let’s see what signature moment Ken puts together!
