Prince's legacy to be honored at BET Awards
Prince received a tribute from Madonna and Stevie Wonder last month, but the late singer is getting another honor at the BET Awards, this time with Sheila E., D'Angelo, The Roots, Janelle Monae and Wonder.
The first Prince tribute, held at the Billboard Music Awards, was met with criticism online. Quickly following, BET tweeted: "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We Got You."
The tribute could become the most memorable moment of the show, airing live on BET from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Muhammad Ali could also be honored, though BET didn't announce official plans to pay tribute to the icon, who died June 3.
Other performers Sunday include Alicia Keys, Maxwell and Usher. Drake, Beyoncé and Rihanna are the top nominees.
