Usher, FKA Twigs and Sheila E. performed a special tribute to Prince during the 2020 GRAMMY Awards on Sunday.

The duo brought the crowd inside of the Staples Center in Los Angeles to their feet with renditions of Prince's catalog of hits including, "When Doves Cry," "Kiss" and "Little Red Corvette."

Usher channeled Prince in leather pants and a matching tuxedo jacket and a dangling earring.

The 41-year-old singer paid subtle tribute to Kobe Bryant with an “8” bedazzled on the sleeve of his jacket in honor of the NBA legend's original Lakers jersey number. 

The night was a somber one in light of the deaths of Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna. Several attendees, including GRAMMYs host Alicia Keys, paid tribute to Bryant throughout the show. 

In addition to celebrating Prince’s legacy at the 2020 GRAMMYs, Sheila E. signed on as musical director of an upcoming concert tribute to the legendary singer. The star-studded event will feature performances from Usher, Keys, Common, Earth Wind & Fire, H.E.R., John Legend, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, and more. 

The tribute airs next Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
