Let's be honest here. We would have loved to see him show up for it and watch the video wih him in it, just because it would be a wtf moment in time with him in his prime/apex.

Well, sure. I always wanted to see him do anything.

I watched UTCM and GB so there you go.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Nah. Him playing second fiddle to MJ would have been the bane of any Prince fans existence in any of the innumerable MJ/Prince comparisons pre and post social media... you see, it ceases to be his prime/apex if that occured, and I'm sure Prince knew that as well.

Prince made the perfect choice when not participating with the song We are the world.
Terrible song.
4 The Tears Of Your Eyes is easily the better song.
As 4 Lionel Richie it had nothing to do with Prince ego. Prince always recorded his vocals all alone that's what people have said that worked with him.

That doesn't matter. There were others there who probably recorded the same way but they still showed up and sang with the group.

Would have been trippy to see MJ towering over him while he sang the "But if we just believe.... there's no way we can fall" line. Would have looked really funny.
A certain kind of mellow.

I was in school back when it came out and it was cringey then and it is cringey now.

Our Band Aid however, THAT was a great tune and well done.

It was one of the two songs to prevent Frankie Goes To Hollywood from getting their fourth number 1 single, "Welcome To The Pleasuredome" (4-minute edit).
