Ken Ehrlich, who ended his 40-year career as the Grammy Awards' executive producer after the 2020 ceremony, served as executive producer of the Prince special. Ehrlich spoke about Prince on January 14, a week before the Grammys.

According to Billboard, he said, "Prince is special. He probably did 12 TV appearances over his career. I did five of them." He added, "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."
