The 2016 BRIT Awards will feature a slew of must-see performances, and now, a tribute to the one and only David Bowie.

Max Lousada, chairman of the BRITs, confirmed on Tuesday (Jan. 12) that a tribute is in the works for the awards ceremony, which will take place at the O2 Arena in London on Feb. 24. A “very special tribute” has been promised in a tweet from the BRITs.

Lousada’s full statement reads:

“David Bowie was one of the most important and influential songwriters and performers ever and, like so many fans around the world, we’re devastated to hear of his loss. A visionary and ground-breaking pioneer, he has inspired generations of musicians and will continue to shape music for many years to come. Naturally, we wish to honor his extraordinary life and work at the forthcoming BRIT Awards and pay a fitting tribute to one of our greatest icons."

Along with the Bowie tribute, the BRIT Awards will include performances from AdeleJustin Bieber and Coldplay, with more to be announced soon.
