NBC and Time Inc. are joining forces for an upcoming television special ‘Sports Illustrated Swimsuit: 50 years of Beautiful’, which will air on February 3.
The special will “indulge viewers in the storied history of the franchise, with behind-the-scenes footage and photography from the exotic cover shoots and back stories from the most loved and recognizable swimsuit models on the planet. All of this will culminate in a countdown of the top 10 SI swimsuit covers of all time,” NBC said in a statement announcing the watershed television moment.
Heidi Klum will host the two-hour special. Tyra Banks, Christie Brinkley, Kathy Ireland, Marisa Miller and Kate Upton are on the bill to make an appearance as well.
Special music performances from John Legend, Enrique Iglesias, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw and more will also take place during the special.
