The show will chart the entertainment legend’s career, and will be hosted by his former Strictly co-host Tess Daly.
Speaking about the show, Shirley said: ‘Sir Bruce Forsyth was a born entertainer – a talented singer, dancer, actor – always putting a smile on people’s faces.
‘I’m honoured to be performing one of his favourite songs in his memory.’
Dame Shirley will lead tributes to Bruce on the show which will be filmed at the London Palladium Wednesday 21st February 2018, the day before what would have been Sir Bruce’s 90th birthday.
Others set to feature include former Strictly judge Len Goodman and presenting duo Ant and Dec.
Charlotte Moore, BBC Director of Content, said: ‘I couldn’t think of a more fitting tribute to our dear friend Bruce than this celebration at the Palladium – a theatre he so loved.
