BET Awards Announce Their Own Prince Tribute After Trashing Madonna's — And This One Will Be The Most Personal Yet!

Pretty much every artist under the sun has performed a moving tribute to Prince since his tragic death in April.

And while BET didn't seem to think much of Madonna's tribute at the Billboard Music Awards, the cable network is taking matters for honoring The Purple One in its own hands!

BET Networks announced the late music legend will be honored at the 2016 BET Awards with a special live performance by Sheila E., The Roots, D'Angelo, Janelle Monae, and more!

This news comes on the heels of the network trashing Madge's May performance — which featured a surprise appearance by Stevie Wonder — insinuating the tribute was underwhelming in a pretty shady tweet.

In a since-deleted video, BET ran a short teaser of the Material Girl's performance, writing "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We Got You."

But apparently, they DO got us — because Sheila E.'s involvement will easily make this the most personal Prince tribute yet!

The network also announced Alicia Keys and Maxwell, along with more stars, will also be performing at this year's award show.

Do U think BET's Prince tribute will live up to the hype? Watch the performance when the 2016 BET Awards airs on June 26 at 8 p.m. ET on BET!

On Friday, Andrew Kornfeld broke his silence in a guest column for CNN about the traumatizing moment he found the iconic artist unconscious in his Minnesota home.

The Recovery Without Walls practice consultant remembered how he felt when he dialed 911, writing:

"Believe me, nothing can prepare a person to walk into such chaos and sadness. As I told the 911 dispatcher on April 21, those on the scene were distraught, which was why I was the one to place the call. But what happened has made me think, long and hard, about what steps we must take to prevent such entirely unnecessary loss of life."

His father, Dr. Howard Kornfeld, was scheduled to fly out to help the singer through his struggle with opioid addiction, but the hitmaker passed away the day before they were supposed to meet.

And while police are investigating the way in which the songsmith was able to obtain the fatal drugs that took his life, Andrew admitted that people who deal with chronic pain will do anything to "escape the agony," adding:

Police Are Investigating How Prince Obtained His Lethal Prescription Of Fentanyl

We just hope for answers!

As we reported, Prince's autopsy revealed that the singer died from a self-administered Fentanyl overdose.

But how did the music legend obtain the powerful opioid?!

That's what law officials are trying to figure out. As of now, state and federal prosecutors are investigating exactly how the 57-year-old received the potent substance.

According to sources, police are questioning whether a doctor prescribed the medication to a person who eventually gave it to the Purple Rain musician.

Authorities have already obtained search warrants for Prince's house, his primary physician, and the Walgreens pharmacy which filled his Rx. However, there is currently no link between the three points of interest.

If a doctor illegally prescribes a drug that kills a patient, he or she could face up to 25 years in jail.

All we want is for justice to be brought down on anyone that breaks the law!

According to the AP, the icon passed away from an opioid overdose. We can't say the results are TOO surprising considering police have been investigating a possible drug overdose for months now.

Now that we know exactly how the musician died, we expect to see people held accountable, especially those closest to him. Authorities suspect pharmacists, doctors, and even friends aided the creative's secret drug habit.
