According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Bee Gees GRAMMY special was the top ratings draw on Sunday evening, averaging 10.3 million viewers and a 1.2 rating among adults 18–49.
Who was the big draw? In addition to performances by Celine Dion, DNCE, Demi Lovato, Keith Urban, John Legend with Stevie Wonder and many more, the two-hour celebration culminated with a performance by the lone surviving Bee Gee, Barry Gibb, during a dazzling finale that included the group's iconic Saturday Night Fever hit "Stayin' Alive."
