Remember that blasé Billboard Music Awards Prince tribute featuring Madonna? Yea, how could we forget. Remember how she tried to take it up a notch and bring out Stevie Wonder? Yea, can’t forget that either. Well now, in the pettiest move of 2016, BET has decided to continue shading the hell out of Billboard and have announced Stevie will join their Prince tribute as well.
First BET aired an ad right after the Billboard Awards suggesting they would make up for the horrible Prince tribute we had to endure. And now, they’ve taken the petty up a level. In a statement obtained by HipHollywood, they announced “BET Networks is keeping their word that “they got you.” The network revealed this morning that multi Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Stevie Wonder, will bring the house down during one of the multiple show-stopping performances spread throughout the show paying homage to Prince at the 16th annual “BET Awards”.”
Stevie will join other artist schedule to honor the Purple One including Sheila E., The Roots, D’Angelo and Janelle Monae.
The 2016 “BET Awards” will air live on Sunday, June 26 at 8pmET on BET. Will you be watching?
