Thanks for the info. .i really dug that. Can't tell if it was pure recorded audio or what, and she's not the most animated performer but that was a great medley. I enjoyed it.

I wonder if people just don't know Prince 's post WB years or of it just wouldn't be appealing enough.

I think that is the first tribute where I think the "spirit" of Prince was captured rather than trying to a copy

Some brave choices and she clearly wanted to give her all

Great job!!!

Totally agree...

I would not have thought she could pull it off..

LOVED that she dared to do Gett Off.....

That may be true but at least it was not Purple Rain and this was for a charity event and I am sure he would have been pleased about that. Look at how a U.S. Territory has been abandoned by the U.S Government.

Not sure how playing 3 songs he no longer performed is really paying tribute. It’s not like he only has a small catalog to choose from. But I’m sure fans who wish he would never have stopped playing these songs are glad when someone else does.

interesting

she made Darling Nikki a lesbionic affair

She didn't try to replicate Prince so it wasn't bad

It looks like her and a bunch of friends dancing and acting out Prince music

Not one Black chick not even a mixed chick J-Lo? Jesus

I don't see anything wrong with the song selections. The performance was just terrible.

SHE SLAYED that tribute. Awesome!

I loved when they were carrying her away lol

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Or it wasn’t really about him. Because if it was she would have done something classy. This was anything but.

Nice job JLO

You know I have no idea why Prince fans act like they have some kind of exclusivity when it comes to loving Prince

The girl obviously loved the man

did he ever include those songs in a sampler?

also didn't he walk out to Sexy MF at an award show a few years ago?

I thought it was cool as hell! I know she's not a great singer, but she's a babe and she can dance her ass off! I'm a gay man, and I totally dug her twist on "Darling Nikki" too! I want more tributes from artists! Good or Bad, taste is all subjective. Who Cares? They are honoring our man in their way. Let the freak flags fly high!!

If it breaks when it bends, U better not put it in!

She should have dropped the heels for combat boots and just gone full
In Living Color Fly Girl routine and just purely danced to Pre recorded Prince.
That was just a sight!!! Now my eyes are sore.

Totally agree. I found it to be crass and cringeworthy. No class at all.

If you want to be entertained with "class" then go to the opera. Some of you must have forgot some of the things Prince pulled off that you might deem as "classless"...songs about incest, oral sex, the assless chaps, the whole thing about "controversy" and I could go on and on..but I think I already have, so I'll end it here.

I wish some of these artists will quit with all the tributes. Prince didn't care for a lot of them while he was living, so then, why all the sudden phoniness? Some of these artist's tributes are very tepid and seemingly so ingenious.
