The Prince tributes continue.

Tuesday's episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will feature a special performance dedicated to the late singer, who died last Thursday at the age of 57. The tribute hails from D'Angelo and other surprise guests.

The special performance comes one night after Fallon himself paid his respects to Prince with a moving story about playing ping-pong with the "Kiss" singer. The announcement also comes several days after Saturday Night Live put together a special tribute episode, titled "Goodnight, Sweet Prince," which compiled the artist's previous performances on the late-night sketch show.

Fallon returned to his former stomping grounds to contribute to the SNL special episode, which featured exclusive footage of Prince's performance at the afterparty for last year's SNL 40th Anniversary Special.

Fox also will pay tribute to Prince on Tuesday with a rebroadcast of New Girl's post-Super Bowl episode featuring the singer, titled "Prince."
