    Tony Bennett Special to Air in January on PBS for Duets II: Carrie Included! :)

    Breaking News - PBS Announces Winter/Spring 2012 Line-Up | TheFutonCritic.com

    BS Arts programming continues on Friday nights following the inaugural PBS Fall Arts Festival. GREAT PERFORMANCES premieres Anna Deavere Smith's one-woman show "Let Me Down Easy," a theatrical exploration of matters of the human body, on January 13 at 9:00 p.m. As in her acclaimed earlier plays, Smith develops the work by interviewing an eclectic range of people and performing as the interviewees in their own words. On January 27 at 9:00 p.m., the 90-minute "Tony Bennett: Duets II" (w.t.) captures the legendary singer with a diverse roster of contemporary artists, including Lady Gaga, John Mayer, Michael Buble, k.d. lang, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Queen Latifah, Norah Jones, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Faith Hill, Alejandro Sanz, Carrie Underwood and the late Amy Winehouse in her last recording.

    What exactly is the special? Is it interviews, performances, behind-the-scenes stuff? I'm not really sure based on the blurb.

    ^ There was a press release that said Tony video taped a special of the entire making of the Duets II CD, as he traveled all over the world to record it, and he taped lots of behind the scene stuff.

    I also think the timing is perfect for this special---- the Grammys are 2 weeks later. lol

    I cannot wait to see this. Carrie's voice is so angelic on this song, but she always brings her performances to another level during live performances. I can't even imagine how fantastic she'll be.
