The 2016 BET Awards Prince Tribute — Featuring Jennifer Hudson, Sheila E., Janelle Monae, Stevie Wonder, The Roots, & More!

no title

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)!

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

no title

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!

Cohen made some excellent guesses but questioned the rules after the face of Frankenstein's Monster popped up amid a sea of "celebrity" faces.

C'mon, Andy! Frankenstein IS the most famous of the old school monsters, after all…
