It was a night bursting with musicians, artists, celebrities, and his biggest fans who came to pay a fitting tribute to the man who will forever be known as…Prince!

Now in post-production, Let’s Go Crazy: The GRAMMY® Salute to Prince, is the spectacular, 2-hour celebration of the iconic, 7-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter, musician, and producer. The special, hosted by actress/comedienne Maya Rudolph, is scheduled to air on the CBS Television Network on the anniversary of the legendary artist’s death on April 21, 2016.

One incredible performance after another graced the stage as both new and veteran talent gathered to pay respect to the “Purple Rain” artist who taught the world how to party like it’s 1999. Among the many artists saluting the legendary performer were:

 

  • Guitar wizards Gary Clark, Jr., and H.E.R., who set the arena aflame with their blistering interpretation of Prince masterpiece, “Let’s Go Crazy”;
  • The Foo Fighters double-dipping with a spirited cover of “Pop Life” before delivering a vigorous version of “Darling Nikki, which the group recorded in 2003;

 

  • Longtime Prince collaborators The Time -- featuring Morris Day, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Jellybean Johnson and Jerome Benton -- traveled back in time to perform groovy 80s hits “Jungle Love,” “Cool” and “The Bird”;
  • Celebrated singer Miguel wowed the crowd and brought them to their feet with an exuberant “I Would Die 4 U,” topped off by a flawless split;

 

  • The Revolution -- described by GRAMMY-winning producer Jimmy Jam as “the band with whom Prince changed the world” – triggered mind-blowing memories with its performances of gems “Delirious,” “Mountains” and “Purple Rain” (led by the sprightly Mavis Staples).

The evening’s additional performance highlights included St. Vincent (“Controversy”), Juanes (“1999”), John Legend (“Nothing Compares to You”), Common (“Sign of the Times”), Beck (“Raspberry Beret”) and Coldplay’s Chris Martin with The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs (“Manic Monday”). The taping closed with an all-star rendition of another Prince classic, “Baby I’m a Star.”
His artistic vision and brilliance blended funk, dance, rock and other genres of music into art that was, and still is, universally enjoyed and celebrated. So “Let’s Go Crazy” together as we pay tribute to the late, great High Priest of Pop: Prince!
