2017 is the 40th anniversary of the movie Saturday Night Fever and its soundtrack album, so the Recording Academy has decided to put on a special night saluting the Bee Gees.

Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees will be taped on Tuesday, February 14 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angles and broadcast at a later date by CBS.

Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Academy said “The Bee Gees—Barry, Robin, and Maurice—were international musical icons who helped make Saturday Night Fever an emblem of 1970s pop culture. With expert harmonies, undeniable groove, and a personal charisma matching their on-stage persona, the iconic band of brothers defined not just a genre, but a generation. I’m looking forward to celebrating one of the most famous soundtracks ever produced and reliving Saturday Night Fever, once again.”

Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of AEG Ehrlich Ventures, said “The Bee Gees created many of pop music’s most memorable anthems and to be able to gather some of the music’s brightest lights together to salute this great legacy is very exciting to me. Presenting new versions of these great songs promises an evening of true highlights, both for the artists themselves and millions of music fans. I’m proud to share a 42-year connection with Barry and his brothers and look forward to helping to create an amazing night of music and memories.”

Performing will be:

Andra Day
Celine Dion
DNCE
Nick Jonas
Tori Kelly
John Legend
Demi Lovato
Little Big Town
Pentatonix
Keith Urban

Barry Gibb will also be the guest of honour and will perform music from Saturday Night Fever.
