Janelle Monae doing Prince? I knew the good times were gonna roll when I heard that a tribute was in the works! Janelle alongside Alicia Keys & Patti Labelle paid tribute to Prince at last nights BET awards. Janelle of course killed it with a passionate performance of Let’s Go Crazy, one of the best Prince songs ever. Is it me or is Prince in the audience giving Janelle the seal of approval there? and is it to early to be calling for a debut?
Alicia Keys’ performance of Adore (another GREAT Prince song) was also pretty decent, though not a patch on Janelle. My personal highlight was her climbing on top of the piano(!!!) to applause by Prince haha (I know the piano playing is Alicia’s thing but I I’m always wondering what more she could do if she didn’t play – she sure showed me huh? LOL)
