From one icon to another. Madonna is set to honor her late friend, the legendary Prince at this month’s Billboard Music Awards.

Armed with a top secret homage, Madge will will join a star-studded list of BBMA performers on May 22, including Justin Bieber, DNCE, Fifth Harmony, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes, Pink, and Britney Spears.

When Prince passed on April 21, Madonna celebrated the late great star with a post on Instagram.

“He Changed The World,” she wrote. “A True Visionary. What a loss. I’m Devastated. This is Not A Love Song.”

Prince helped co-write Madonna’s “Love Song” for her 1989 album Like a Prayer, and also sang and played guitar on the song.
