The Tribute to The Bee--Gees (half the members are still alive)--was a far better tribute than the one to George Michael.

There's only 1 Bee Gee left, Barry.
Agreed...much better tribute

There is only one BeeGee left. Barry.
His two brothers in the group have both died.
As did their younger brother Andy, who was a solo artist.

Well it was good.

i think that the Prince tribute will be just about associating Bruno Mars' current sound with the Minneapolis sound and the TIme.

On the MOrris Day and the Time site, he has a picture that labels the TIme as the "Uncles" and the Mars boys as "Nephews.

They did the BeeGees tribute to advertise that new CBS show called "Staying Alive" or something like that. They are only giving out TEN awards during this show.

We aren't the only ones hating on this show.
Anil Dash just tweeted THIS piece of glorious shade:
"If they do some slow dirge tribute of a Prince song I'm gonna run over there and tear down the Grammys just FYI get my bail money ready ok
"

Hope that's not totally it.

That completely sucks. Like I said more of an excuse to make a connection between Mars and the TIme. I hope I am wrong.

This is not good.
It's he really playing the guitar and was that Prince's cloud?
Fake Prince moves.
The best part was using P's own intro.

Bah on this.

Seriously, that ad using NOTHING COMPARES TO YOU was better.
WAIT!!
We've just witnessed the first commercial licensing of P's music. Most people won't realize that, but if it's always done this well, it's OK.

Karoke night. Nice try but playing a 80's cliche version of Prince is not really a tribute. He is not a bad guitarist but Prince made that shit look easy and his vocals could be heard over the music better than Marz's. I like Bruno and I think he was sincere but this is not doing anything to cement Prince's legacy. It did remind me that Prince can't be dublicated however, no matter how talented I think Bruno is.

Wonder why he went so literal? Trynna be Prince, too soon if ever. Intro and band were great. The guitar solo was sweet that he tried at least. They cut to JZ and he was lookin at his watch.

Brand new boogie without the hero.

This is why I keep saying that I don't like tributes.There's no point to 'em.I don't get excited about seeing other people sing Prince's songs.

That was a fucking joke. And I thought Madonna was disrespectful last year.

Edit: The Time was ok but then Bruno came out as Prince and it looked like a tragic mess tbh.

The Google Commercial made me cry...simply beautiful. Right when I was about to fume over the tribute, this little gem reminded me how much I love Prince, and seeing how is music touched so many people quickly turned my anger into tears of joy. That was amazing!
