The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards can't honor those who've given so much to the industry without recognizing the Queen of Soul herself, Aretha Franklin.

The annual awards show celebrating top performers in a variety of musical genres will be broadcast live on MTV from Radio City Music Hall in NY.

17, 2018, just a day after the legendary singer passed away following her battle with advanced pancreatic cancer, the show's executive producers, Jesse Ignjatovic and Bruce Gillmer, revealed how they plan to pay tribute to her legacy during the event, Entertainment Tonight reports. "We're talking about what that is still".

Ignjatovic added: "Whether it's a performance or spoken - just something that's organic and done in a way that feels tonally right because it's Aretha Franklin". I mean, she's performed on [the Radio City Music Hall] stage many times in her career, in this room. "VH1 is part of the MTV family". Trying to figure out how to put something together that feels right and fitting.

Ariana Grande, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are among the performers at this year's VMAs, which taking place at Radio City Music Hall in NY on Monday.
