With the passing of Prince still on the minds of everyone in the music world, Madonna took to the stage for the grand finale of the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday to pay tribute to the late rock legend.
Seated on a sparkling purple chair, Madonna performed “Nothing Compares 2 U” with a string quartet while pictures of tombstone epitaphs and Prince’s live shows played behind her.
Prince fans on Twitter had a mixed reaction to Madonna‘s performance of one of Prince’s finest songs, but were very excited for Stevie Wonder’s unannounced appearance.
