In what’s set to be must-see TV, Sunday night’s Grammy Awards will feature musical tributes to recently departed music legends Prince and George Michael.

Specifics of which artists will be involved or what songs will be included have not be revealed, although it was previously announced that John Legend would perform during the In Memoriam section.

“George Michael and Prince were pop icons who showcased rare musical genius and otherworldly charisma,” The Recording Academy said in a statement. “While each possessed a distinct style and sound, they were both adored by audiences worldwide. The passings of two such creative innovators were a huge loss for the creative community; The Recording Academy is humbled to pay homage to their tremendous legacies on the Grammy stage.”


Some of the artists scheduled to perform on the show include Beyonce, Adele, Lady Gaga, The Weeknd,  A Tribe Called Quest and Alicia Keys.

Battling it out for Album of the Year are Beyonce, Adele, Justin Bieber, Drake and Sturgill Simpson.

Over the course of their careers, Prince won seven Grammys and George Michael received two.

The “Purple Rain” icon passed away on April 21, 2016, while the former Wham frontman died on Christmas Day.

The Grammys air Sunday on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
