We are not worthy, Maya Rudolph!!!!

For those who don't know, the Saturday Night Live vet has a Prince cover band with Gretchen Lieberum aptly called Princess.

But this week, the performer made it clear she was nothing less than a QUEEN — decked out in purple, obvi — when the band performed in honor of The Purple One's birthday!

Maya and Co. brought the house down at the Teragram Ballroom in L.A. playing all of the late music icon's hits — like Darling Nikki, Nasty Girl, Little Red Corvette, and of course Purple Rain.

But the icing on the cake was the presence of Fred Armisen, who backed his SNL classmate for the night playing drums.

Best birthday party ever! Ch-ch-check out clips from Princess's performance (below)!

As we're still mourning the tragic death of Prince last week, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon continues to pay tribute to the music legend with heartfelt performances.

On Tuesday's show, D'Angelo took the stage with Prince cover band Princess – made up of Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum — for an emotional performance of Sometimes It Snows in April.

With the entire stage draped in purple lighting, D'Angelo played the keyboard as Rudolph and Lieberum sang the backup harmonies on the 1986 track.
