Let's Go Crazy, Get Delirious or just Kiss: Prince getting BET's highest award



Prince His royal purpleness Prince will be awarded lifetime achievement honors at this month's BET Awards.

The 51-year-old joins the likes of James Brown, Whitney Houston (seriously?), Diana Ross and Al Green as the BET Awards celebrates its 10th year in Los Angeles on June 27.

BET says the Prince tribute will stand out, the Associated Press reports. (Prince tribute ... stand out? Reeeally.) 

"Prince is dynamic. Prince is genius. Prince is music," said Stephen G. Hill, president of programming, music and specials for the network.

Trivia question: Prince has five No. 1 singles on the mainstream U.S. charts in his career. Two of those tunes are in the headline to this news item: Let's Go Crazy and Kiss. Can you name the other three without using Google?
