Here it is, the moment we've been waiting for: the BET Awards tribute to Prince.

It's up to Sheila E., Janelle Monae, Stevie Wonder, and The Roots to show up and prove themselves after BET threw major shade at Madonna's tribute at the Billboard Music Awards.

So is this one bigger and better?

Well, it's certainly bigger, as it was split up into multiple performances throughout the night. And it all started (above) with the Legendary Roots Crew, along with Erykah Badu and Bilal.

Erykah was subdued and surprisingly forgettable doing The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker… Bilal, on the other hand, really brought the spirit of the Purple One to the stage with his performance of The Beautiful Ones.

Next up, Tori Kelly joined Stevie Wonder — who interestingly enough was also in Her Madgesty's BBMAs tribute — for a performance of Take Me With U.

It was just OK… but then Jennifer Hudson took the stage and showed everyone how paying tribute is DONE.

Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing performers honoring the late artist starting with the Roots with Erykah and Bilal (below)!

Get the deets HERE!

Well, that clears up that paternity claim!

On Wednesday it was revealed that Carlin Q. Williams, who claimed to be Prince's long-lost son, was never the songsmith's child.

Last month, the 39-year-old came out of the woodwork to file a paternity claim against the late legend's estate, saying that his momma, Marsha Henson, got pregnant after supposedly sleeping with the artist in 1976.

But after taking a DNA test, sources say the results showed a 0.0% chance that the Kansas City resident is the icon's kid.

However, Carlin — who is currently locked up on a gun possession charge — isn't the only person claiming to be the hitmaker's offspring, and deserving of a piece of his vast fortune.

A woman named Taz Walker is also saying Prince is her father, but we don't know the results of her DNA test just yet.

Now, we aren't sure if the singer's estate gave Miz Versace permission to use the previously-unheard track.

However, if the songsmith gifted it to her, it's possible the 61-year-old didn't actually need approval to play the music after all.
