Prince's screw ups

In the 1984 Birthday show, Prince butchers "When Doves Cry" then blames the crowd! LMAO He played it off pretty well. Are there any specific screw ups you guys think are funny or enjoy? Because I find this hilarious! lol lol

The MTV awards 1991 .at the beginning when he sings his first verse he kinda jerks the mic so that it hits his face and there's the James brown/Michael Jackson "lamp post" incident.

That silly shawl he had on whipped around and knocked the mic over, which made him miss his queue. I just watched it. I didn't see it hit his face.

And the best thing about that clip is Wendy's father, the late Mike Melvoin (he was also part of The Wrecking Crew), so proudly introducing his daughter and the band.

I'm sure he does that at one point on the SNL performance of 'Electric Chair' too. lol

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

It looks for all the world to me like it hit him in the face and I've seen others mention it too but it does happen quickly maybe it didn't quite him him idk. I do agree about the shawl being silly. Never cared for it it always looked so cumbersome for dancing lol

There are some good ones on there and he handles them all well.
Love when his piano does not work ...
Also when the balloons don't go as planned on New Year's Eve and he starts singing auld Lang syne and doesn't know the words
