Yes, the Grammys will have a Prince tribute

They still haven't given many details though.

The Grammys will include a Prince tribute.

Yes, that might be the least surprising announcement ever related to the Grammys. But organizers Wednesday confirmed it will happen during the Feb. 12 awards show.

There will also be a tribute to George Michael.

You're not getting many more details beyond that, however.

The Recording Academy listed 25 musical artists that will take part in either the Prince or George Michael tribute. But what each artist is doing, and which tribute they're a part of, hasn't been revealed.

So, there you go ... that's kind of it. Though the organizers did say the segments will be "unforgettable."

Here's the list of confirmed artists:

Adele, Kelsea Ballerini, William Bell, Chance The Rapper, Gary Clark Jr., Daft Punk, Andra Day, Cynthia Erivo, Tori Kelly, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, John Legend, Little Big Town, Demi Lovato, Lukas Graham, Bruno Mars, Metallica, Maren Morris, Anderson .Paak, Katy Perry, Sturgill Simpson, A Tribe Called Quest, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, and The Weeknd. the awards show is publicly confirming there will be a tribute to Prince.

As for balancing honoring the musical losses over the past year with celebrating winners, Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich told Rolling Stone:

"You've got a lot of people incredibly excited about being nominated. I don't want to deny them by devoting a third of the show to people who've passed away."

Prince won seven Grammys over the course of his career, most recently Best Male R&B Vocal Performance in 2007 for the song "Future Baby Mama."

The Grammys are Sunday night, and start at 7 p.m. CST.

And keep an eye out on your music streaming service of choice during and after the show – rumors are a large chunk of Prince's music will be available in the near future.
