Exposing a change event on a datagridview cell that is configured as a combobox

I have a datagridview that uses a drop down for one column. I want to capture the event where the user change the value in the drop down, but none of the supplied events appear to take effect until AFTER I leave the cell and move the focus somewhere else.

Is there a way to cast this cell to the specific cell type and raise an event that fires immediately when the combo value is changed?
