The tribute special will air on CBS Tuesday, April 21, at 9 pm local time. Prince’s ex-fiancée Sheila E. was the music director for the tribute show. She spoke to artists such as Usher about which songs they wanted to perform for the tribute.

In a preview from the show from People, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl calls Prince “the most talented of anybody.” He added, “He was the best bass player. He was the best guitar player. He was the best drummer. He was the best singer. He was the best dancer.”
