Shirley Caesar is ready to take BET viewers to church.

The legendary gospel artist will perform this weekend on Sunday Best, and serve as a guest judge as the final four hopefuls compete for the grand prize, the cable network announced in a press release.

The episode will show the finalists go back to where it all began — the church. Each contestant will travel to a local church to lead a praise and worship service, then perform a traditional hymn live on stage.
