A Prince tribute featuring Sheila E., the Roots, D’Angelo and Janelle Monae will take place at the 2016 BET Awards.
The news comes two weeks after a similar tribute was staged at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards by Madonna and Stevie Wonder. That performance received a lukewarm response from BET and others on social media.
Following Madonna’s collaboration with Wonder, BET promptly shared a teaser for their Prince tribute with a tweet that read, “Yeah, we saw that. Don’t worry. We Got You.”
Prince was honored with the BET Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. The 2016 BET Awards will take place June 26 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
