Prince is the musical guest on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" this week.

His performance will be different than other "SNL" entertainers for the Nov. 1 appearance.

Instead of doing two separate performances, the legendary singer will perform an eight-minute-long jam session with no commercial interruption during the middle of the show.

This will mark the third time Prince has performed on "Saturday Night Live," with his previous appearances in 1981 and 2006.

Prince will be accompanied by his all-woman back-up group 3rdEyeGirl, with which he recorded the album "PlectrumElectrum."

Entertainer, comedian, producer, director and actor Chris Rock is this week's guest host.
