I did expect to see him walk out. He wore that nice Black and White suit with 3121 on it. The audience went crazy when they announced his name..and boy did he get an extremely warm applause and standing ovation....and I was hoping he won..thank goodness he did, because that audience was rooting for him big time!


I guess it ain't ova after all!

I can't wait for the pictures to come flying in. I loved his outfit, it's so Prince.

I really loved the standing ovation he got and at the same time, he was so humble. Like wow...

thumbs up! Congrats Prince!

I can't remember all, I was so happy at the moment when he won, but it was about what would they say about us 50 years from now (talking about planet earth)..also he made a plea to the record execs (correct someone if I'm wrong) regarding R&B, Jazz and Hip-hop...can someone else expound on what he said about this?

Sorry I can't recap my mind was scrambled ... In essence it was about being introduced to some true jazz legends by Tavis Smiley last week, giving them what he holds dear...the stage he performs on (I guess he means having a jam session), leaving the people of tomorrow enough resources & challenging phone companies to play true music?? Someone help me out please? I know I'm soooo off.

Let's hope the clip ends up on Housequake, then we could pause and rewind and write down what he said. It was really deep and I was so taken in by his presence that I couldn't really make sense out of it, lol. But his stuff can be so deep that it takes a few listens to understand it.

(Laughing about short term memory..me too! lol )

He also spoke about the jazz musicians that performed at the aftershow last week. He said they were happy to meet him, but he was more happy to meet them.

Prince just needs to open a music school....to keep the "real music by real musicians" flowing....I could see it now with the big symbol..

"Prince's School of Music

Mission statement:Real Music by Real Musicians"

i didn't catch everything but i think, and i'm parphrasing, it was about old musicians bringing music back and forward to the 21st century and taking it away from the accountants and lawyers who've destroyed music. it was something like that.

He looked great but I couldn't help thinking how he criticizes the accountants and lawyers who helped make him a rich man, imho.

I love me some Prince, but is there true action behind his words?
