Saturday Night Live is paying musical tribute to Prince this weekend, airing a clip show that features the Purple One’s performances on NBC’s late-night sketch comedy. The revolutionary artist died on Thursday at the age of 57.

Prince was most recently a musical guest in 2014, playing an extended medley/jam, a move for the show that was unprecedented. He also performed on SNL in 2006, and 1981, and played “Electric Chair” from the Batman soundtrack on SNL‘s 15th anniversary special in 1989.
