Music legend Madonna donned a pastel purple suit at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards for a tribute performance in honor of late iconic singer Prince, who passed away this April at age 57.

The controversial memorial (which included a surprise appearance by Stevie Wonder) struck a chord with many fans of the Purple One, including BET, which threw major shade at the show.

Just moments after the 57-year-old vocalist took the stage, the BET Awards Twitter account released a promo for the BET Awards 2016 and announced it would also honor Prince — and apparently do a better job than the “Like a Virgin’ crooner.

In the 15-second clip, the show’s date and time are revealed, followed by the tagline, “Yeah we saw that. Don’t worry. We got you.”
