DJ D-Nice kicking off Grammys salute to Prince tonight

CBS will air “Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince” on Tuesday night.

DJ D-Nice will kick off the festivities with an official “Grammy Salute to Prince” preshow edition of his popular #ClubQuarantine series on his official Instragram account. The hourlong set celebrating the life and legacy of the global superstar will start at 8 p.m. EST, with a second set at 8 p.m PST.

“No matter the generation of music lover, everyone can agree that Prince is timeless. I’m reminded of this whenever I play his music anywhere in the world,” said D-Nice. “Prince will always be one of my favorite artists, and I’m honored to help celebrate him today.”

“Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince” was taped back in January and is hosted by comedian and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Maya Rudolph, who will perform with her Prince cover band, Princess.

It airs from 9 p.m.-11 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and streams on CBS All Access.

An all-star lineup was tapped to perform hits from Prince’s renowned catalog.

Performers including Beck, Gary Clark Jr., Common, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Foo Fighters, H.E.R., Juanes, John Legend, Chris Martin, Miguel, Morris Day and the Time, Princess, Sheila E., St. Vincent, Mavis Staples, the Revolution, and Usher, with special appearances by Fred Armisen, Naomi Campbell, Misty Copeland, FKA Twigs and Jimmy Jam.

Last month, the Recording Academy and MusiCares established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to support music professionals affected by the pandemic. A special PSA will make its broadcast debut during the tribute.

Prince, famous for “Purple Rain” and other hits, won seven Grammy Awards and was nominated 38 times, according to the Recording Academy.
