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!

Whitney Houston

Fans are getting the chance to snag their own part of Whitney Houston's legacy.

As you surely know, the music legend passed away back in 2012 from an accidental drug overdose at the age of 48.

Now, dozens of the New Jersey native's personal items (think: wedding dress, countless awards, jewelry, debit cards, a passport, etc.) are being put up for auction through Heritage Auctions on June 24 and 25.

The sale is even expected to rake in a minimum of $500,000!

Most of the personal items will begin bidding for $500-$1,000, while her gorgeous Marc Bauer wedding gown she wore to say "I do" to Bobby Brown will go for at least $3,500.

Other items from her wardrobe include various red-carpet dresses and a custom leather bomber jacket inscribed with her nickname, "Nippy." Amazing!

Some of the awards that will be up for grabs include: The 1988 American Music Award for I Wanna Dance With Somebody, the multi-platinum plaque from her 1986 debut album, several Grammy nomination certificates, and a 1993 Billboard Music Award for I Will Always Love You.

Garry Shrum, head of Heritage's Entertainment and Music Memorabilia division, dished on working with the Houston family:

"We gave them some ideas, they gave us some ideas, and we came up with this 119-piece collection that's basically a retrospective of Whitney from the beginning. From when she first started singing after she left being a background singer for Chaka Khan and Lou Rawls. We have her passport from the beginning, all these various awards and outfits, all kinds of cool and groovy things."

In case you're looking for a present for us, we wouldn't mind a few of these things… that's for sure!

Selena Gomez must have quite conflicting feelings about this…

While Justin Bieber didn't have the best time at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, it looks like he had a much more enjoyable Monday all thanks to Taylor Swift.

After winning Top Male Artist and Top Social Media Artist at the Las Vegas-based event, the 22-year-old decided to relax in his car listening to some T.Swift music late Monday night.

However, The Biebs wasn't about to be a casual fan and listen to something obvious like Blank Space or New Romantics… he threw it way back to 2007 with Tay Tay's Teardrops on My Guitar!

Justin shared a rather adorable video to Instagram of himself singing along to the country song, and while he may only know the chorus, we're sure Taylor was flattered.

Now when will Taylor cover Baby??

Ch-ch-check out the ultimate Belieber/Swiftie crossover (below)!!!
