The Arsenio Hall Show is getting the big guns.

One day after Jay Leno helped make a surprise season-two announcement, Arsenio Hall -- with help from a look-a-like -- announced that Prince would be the sole guest on Wednesday, March 5, for what's billed as "a rare late-night appearance."

Prince, who recently guest-starred in New Girl's Super Bowl episode, will perform several songs and be interviewed by Hall, sharing his plans for the year.

"The Arsenio Hall Show has always been so welcoming to us in the past and so we wanted to return that favor," Hall says, reading off a letter written by Prince.
