In just a few weeks, the 2020 Grammy awards will take place—and a huge announcement about one of the most iconic artists in history has just been made. It has been revealed that Prince will receive an all-star tribute during the Grammy festivities that will take place a few days after the live award ceremony on CBS.
The 62nd annual Grammy awards are set to air on January 26th at 8PM and to get you even more excited for what’s to come during the full celebration of the Grammy festivities, the legendary Prince has been chosen to receive a star-studded tribute. @ENews reports, the Recording Academy will host a tribute concert for Prince titled, “Let’s Go Crazy: The GRAMMY Salute to Prince” honoring the career of the 7-time Grammy winner. The event will take place two days after the 2020 Grammys on January 28th.
Among the performers set for the tribute include: Usher, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Common, H.E.R., Mavis Staples, Sheila E., Morris Day and Earth, Wind & Fire, more performers are expected to be announced in the next few weeks leading up to the show. Taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the “Let’s Go Crazy” concert taping will air later in 2020 on CBS. For all Prince fans who want to attend, tickets are on sale now and available for purchase.
Grammys producer Ken Elrich expressed his excitement at the concert and explained a bit of what fans can expect:
“One of the true joys of producing the GRAMMY Awards is both working with and being able to tribute your heroes, and Prince gave me the opportunity of doing both. His GRAMMY appearances, though few, were historic, and it’s with mixed feelings that we approach this opportunity to celebrate the amazing legacy he left us. We’ve gathered a remarkable collection of artists across genres and across generations to salute one of music’s truly singular iconic writer/performers, and believe me, it’s a tall order to do him justice.”
Prince received his last Grammy award in 2017 after his death, he won for his album “Hit N Run Phase Two” in the Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical category.
