The event will be hosted by Leslie Jones. "33 years ago this Sunday, Prince and his band, The Revolution, released 'Purple Rain, ' one of the most important albums of all time", reads the YouTube description.

Who Will be Performing at the Award Show?

Last year's energy-filled performances included tributes to the late Prince and a memorable collaboration between Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar; no word yet on whether or not new mom-of-three Beyonce will make an appearance, but if so, it'll most likely be as an audience member rather than performer (though she would be a showstopper nonetheless!).

"Beyoncé's "Lemonade" will go up against Bruno Mars' "24K Magic", Chance the Rapper's" Coloring Book", Solange's "A Seat at the Table" and J. Cole's "4 Your Eyez Only".

Among men, Bruno Mars leads with five nominations, including Album of the Year for his No. 1 disc "24K Magic" as well as Best Male R&B/Pop Artist, Video Director and Viewers Choice.
