Madonna & Stevie Wonder's Billboard Music Awards 2016 Prince Tribute - Watch Now

Madonna and Stevie Wonder perform a special tribute to the late artist Prince on stage at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards held at the T-Mobile Arena on Sunday (May 22) in Las Vegas.

First, Madonna stood on stage solo and sang a rendition of Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” to honor her late friend, who passed away at the age of 57 last month. She was joined by Stevie later during the set to perform Prince‘s smash hit song “Purple Rain.”

Watch the tribute performance video below…

    Awful and disrespectful

  • Sweet Cheeks

    As Simon Cowell would say that was dreadful and as a Prince fan I’m so appalled! Billboard blew it big time!!

  • 6plus12

    With so much talent available, BB comes up with this? Almost an insult -

  • Gabriela

    Madonna was totally respectful and made a proper tribute to Prince as a friend and fan.
    People who are saying trash about that performance clearly are haters and spread hate wherever they go.
    Madonna is a legend, an icon and deserves to be treated just like that such as Prince.
    It’s sad how people usually take idols for granted when they are alive and only truly recognize their value after they’re gone.

    Madonna haters can suck a smegma and herpes infected dick :) Have a nice day! 😎

  • Michelle Eve

    Horrible. Worst choice. Madonna should retire.

  • Visitor

    Ah, Jared, ‘Nothing Compares to you’ is Prince song.

  • Jeff

    I am not sure why there is always so much hatred towards Madonna. She pretty much the career every single female pop star wants. She’s been around for over 30 years in the music business and still sells out arenas and people love to talk about her still.

  • Gina

    Ironically, Madonna has probably done exactly what you described herself.

  • onyx

    Why did Madonna let BBMA’s play her like that?

  • Carmen Pas

    Im a fan of Madonna and stevie Wonder but it was so bad I changed the channel.It would have been great to see Princes band and others that had performed with him on stage in his shows to be part of the tribute and show more video of him also.

  • Aaron

    Why such mindless antipathy toward Madonna, especially in her homeland? The Queen kept her Prince tribute classy, and her vocals, while not the best in her entire career spanning over three decades, are solid. Sure, her voice was much better in the 1990s, but all women who live long enough hit menopause. She takes off her clothes, and haters complain she is too old, despite her fitness. She breaks charts for the most # 1s on any given Billboard chart EVER with her LATEST RECORD, and she should retire, yet again. With average ticket prices on her LATEST TOUR higher than those of fresh pop kittens like Taylor Swift, Madonna bested ALL other music artists, male and female, on Forbes’ 2015 list, and she is laughing all the way to the bank while you call her “irrelevant” or whatever the Hell you fancy labelling her. Long live the Queen!

  • Shaw Shank

    UGH!!!! When I found out that she was the only one doing the tribute, I purposely didn’t watch (I didn’t hear about Stevie Wonder but even he couldn’t save that dreadful tribute. Madonna did not sound good at all and the music composition for “Nothing Compares 2 U” sounds like something a kid could have made on a Casio keyboard). Soooo glad I didn’t watch this on tv. It would have been a total waste of 8mins of my time. Hell, I couldn’t stomach it on the few seconds and fast forwards I watched here. It was the most pitiful tribute I have ever seen in my entire life. Prince deserved WAY better!!!

  • Shaw Shank

    Haaaaaa!!!! Best come back ever. Exactly!!! Nobody is hating on Madonna…we are hating on her awful tribute.

    Mo, your Prince Tribute was faaaaaaaaaaaaantastic !

    Prince was a GREAT ARTIST. He had a 3rd eye.
    (means: his eye-chakra was able 4 paranormal oscillations.)
