Grammys Plan Special Tribute to Prince, George Michael

The upcoming 59th Annual Grammy awards will pay tribute to George Michael and Prince in two special segments of the show. Details for the special tributes to seven-time Grammy-winner Prince and two-time winner Michael have not been revealed and are being kept under wraps, but with the star-studded lineup that includes Adele, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood and more, it is sure to be memorable.

“George Michael and Prince were pop icons who showcased rare musical genius and otherworldly charisma,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “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.”

The Grammys will air live on CBS-TV on February 12th.
