“Let’s Go Crazy” tonight watching star-studded salute to the late, great Prince

Today marks the fourth anniversary of Prince‘s death, and we can all remember him tonight by tuning in to Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince, which was recorded January 28 in Los Angeles.

The special is hosted by Maya Rudolph, who played Beyoncé to Fred Armisen‘s Prince in their memorable Prince Show sketch on Saturday Night Live. She’ll also perform with her Prince cover band, Princess — and Armisen will make a special appearance.

Among the artists who perform on the two-hour special are Earth, Wind & Fire, frequent Prince collaborator Sheila E., The BanglesSusanna Hoffs, gospel/soul legend Mavis Staples, Prince’s former band The Revolution, Morris Day & The Time, Usher, John Legend, Coldplay‘s Chris Martin, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Beck and more.

Other artists making special appearances include ballerina Misty Copeland, super-producer Jimmy Jam, and supermodel Naomi Campbell.

In addition to featuring artists performing Prince’s own hits, like “Kiss,” “I Would Die 4 U,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Controversy” and “1999,” the special also highlights the hit songs he wrote for others.

For example, Hoffs teams up with Martin to sing The Bangles’ 1986 hit “Manic Monday,” Sheila E. performs her 1984 smash “The Glamorous Life,” and Legend sings “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which Sinead O’Connor took to #1 in 1990.
