2016 Billboard Music Awards - Show

Last night’s 2016 Billboard Music Awards honored the life of Prince with a special tribute by Madonna.

Donning a metallic purple suit with ruffled sleeves, Madonna gave a somber rendition of “Nothing Compares 2 U” in front of a montage of memorable images of the late singer. When the band cut to instrumentals for the immortalized “Purple Rain” out popped Stevie Wonder, led onstage by Madonna.

Watch a clip of the performance below:

Although some felt the performance was a solid attempt, the shade immediately commenced on social media.

Do you think Madonna and Stevie did the tribute justice? Sound off in the comments below.
