Prince's legacy to be honoured at BET Awards


Prince is to be honoured at the BET Awards.

Sheila E, D'Angelo, The Roots, Janelle Monae and Wonder will be paying tribute to the star, who died of an accidental overdose in April.

The tribute could become the most memorable moment of the show, which will take place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles tonight.

It's thought late boxer Muhammad Ali could also be honoured, though BET didn't announce official plans to pay tribute to the icon, who died on June 3.

Other performers will include Alicia Keys, Maxwell and Usher.
