Today, on what would be his 58th birthday, is “Prince Day” in Minnesota. Using today as a backdrop, BET announced the first of the artists who would be paying tribute to the purple one by performing at the 2016 BET Awards.

Sheila E., The Roots, D’Angelo and Janelle Monae are among those who will help deliver a “special musical celebration” honoring the pop/R&B trailblazer, to be “spread throughout the show” and “capture the unprecedented career and musical genius of the beloved pop icon like only BET can,” the network said in a statement.

BET of course is on record as having suggested that Madonna’s performance of two Prince tunes at the Billboard Music Awards was not well done, and in turn promised a dazzling deluge at their own awards show.
