Today marks the fourth anniversary of Prince’s death, and tonight, fans will get the opportunity to remember the legendary musician by tuning into CBS’ Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy® Salute to Prince.
The two-hour star-studded special, which was recorded on January 28 in Los Angeles, is hosted by Maya Rudolph, who played Beyoncé to Fred Armisen‘s Prince in their memorable Prince Show sketch on Saturday Night Live. She’ll also perform with her Prince cover band, Princess — and Armisen will make a special appearance.
The program will also include the likes of Usher, John Legend, Earth, Wind & Fire, Miguel, H.E.R., Common, frequent Prince collaborator Sheila E., and other notables who’ll perform some of Prince’s greatest hits.
Other artists making special appearances include ballerina Misty Copeland, super-producer Jimmy Jam, model and businesswoman Naomi Campbell, and FKA Twigs, who you’ll see dancing with Usher during his performance of “Kiss.”
In addition to featuring artists performing Prince’s own hits, like “Kiss,” “I Would Die 4 U,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Controversy” and “1999,” the special also highlights the hit songs Prince wrote for others.
For example, you’ll see John Legend singing “Nothing Compares 2 U,” and Sheila E. doing “The Glamorous Life.”
If that wasn’t enough, fans at home can join an exclusive pre-show on Instagram thanks to DJ D-Nice, who will hit the turntables at 8 p.m. ET for a special edition of Club Quarantine dedicated to the rock star.
Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince airs tonight from 9:00–11:00 PM ET/PT on CBS.
