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.
During the song, the R&B star changed the original lyrics to send a special message to the late icon, singing:
“I often dream of heaven and I know that Prince is there.”
