Godspeed. The amount of musical bases covered in this piece, let alone in such a natural and free-flowing manner, is incredible. Guy really had his own unique brand of style.

Default What tribute to Prince could be complete

without his tribute to the 2007 Super Bowl?

HuffingtonPost: ...Madonna’s much-hyped performance honoring Prince at the Billboard Music Awards...started...(a) petition...to stop the “Material Girl” from performing...

Twitter attacked Madonna for her lackluster showing, and Black Entertainment Television made sure people knew its tribute to the Purple Rain singer would be much better...

When I heard about Madonna doing the Billboard tribute, my reaction was, "Okay. And who else?" She was doomed to fail because, as I said, she was limited to best representing Prince only in the visual sense.

BET delivered on their bravado -- not so much because of the higher talent level of who they employed to perform, but because their tribute celebrated the full spectrum of Prince's artistic skills and contributions:

And in a gargantuan double smackdown of Madonna and Billboard, Roots drummer Questlove (who introduced the Billboard tribute and defended Madonna online) and Stevie Wonder (last seen being led onstage by Madonna) both accepted BET's invitation to "redeem" themselves!
