Prince is staging a takeover of “The Arsenio Hall Show.”
The artist formerly known as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince will serve as the sole guest on the March 5 edition of “The Arsenio Hall Show,” performing a number of songs and sharing his 2014 with Hall.

The announcement was made in appropriately eccentric form, with a Prince lookalike delivering an envelope containing the news, which he made Hall read himself. (Hopefully, Prince himself won’t be so tight-lipped during his interview with Hall next week.)
“Just say the word and we will bring our whole crew over to your place and do a performance you will never forget,” Prince’s message read. “Just in case you haven’t heard, I’ve been practicing, and I’ve gotten pretty good now.”
“The Arsenio Hall Show” was renewed for a second season on Wednesday.
