After the less-than-stellar Prince tribute at the 2016 Billboard Awards, BET shaded them with nine words in a Twitter meme that promised to give Prince fans a better tribute: “Yeah, we saw that. Don’t worry. We got you.” Now we know more about what the network has planned…
It’s been announced that Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, The Roots, D’Angelo, Sheila E, and Maxwell are confirmed as performing for the Prince tribute at the 2016 BET Awards on June 26th. The lineup sounds like all the artists fans suggested for the Billboard tribute!

The 2016 BET Awards will be hosted by “Black-ish” stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson, hosting for their second consecutive year.
After seeing the lineup, looks like the tribute will be hot! What do you think, Roomies?
