Classic TV live performances

What are people's most memorable TV performances? I'm working through some of the classic ones on YouTube and loving that lots of them are back up online, been really nice way to remember Prince's music and showmanship.

.

Some of my favourites

.

Fury - SNL

1999 and Controversy - Le Grand Jounal 2009

Let's Work/Delirious - Sinbad

Musicology - Jay Leno (with extra Mel Gibson on the couch)

Lolita/Satisfied - American Idol

Funknroll and Mutiny - Arsenio

You're The One For Me (D-Train cover with Shelby) - Lopez Tonight

Everlasting Now - Leno

Electric Chair - SNL

Superbowl 2007

Sign o The Times - Rock N Roll Hall of Fame

.

Are there any other great TV clips I'm forgetting?

What show did he play "Turn me loose" on?

Cause tomorrow is taking too long
and yesterday's too far away
and the reality that you believe in begins to bind.

If you ever want to see a person take an event by storm, that's the one. His outfit was smashing, he had new moves, he remixes the track, and he cooked with Mayte. The opening fakeout was amazing. Didn't even need guitar.

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

Thanks have had it since the sea change album. First discovered prince through becks midnite vultures album back in the day.

Forgot to mention Somewhere Here On Earth performance on Leno, love how they presented the track on that one.

Also P Control from VH1 was brilliant, hadn't seen or heard about that one.

1985 Grammys 'Baby I'm A Star' performance. worship

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.
