I am watching at the BET awards, and i knew I would be emotional... The tributes are good, but I am still so sad. Sad because I am still hurting so bad that Prince is gone, but also it seems that our music has also passed away. A more fitting tribute would be to have all performances given by real musicians, and song-writers, and not just people singing over the same tracks.

Erykah and Bilal were good, and I appreciate Dave Chappelle's intro, however, I am missing Prince more that ever now, and there does not seem to be anyone that will take his place.

Going to try to finish watching this but I don't know if I can make it.

I hear what you're saying. All of a sudden, I have started to feel very depressed and sad, because this makes me realize more than ever, that we have really lost Prince. That is tearing me up right now, and I would give anything to have him back.

Wow, Bilal did a good job. Reminds me of when he sang 'Sister' and blew the audience away, at the Carnegie Hall Prince tribute in NYC a few years ago. [Edited 6/26/16 17:51pm]

I remember that. When BET announced they were doing a tribute Bilal was the vocalist that came to mind first and foremost who i hoped would be recruited to sing. He was just amazing on that trippy version of "Sister".

Bilal is probably the only person I can think of a vocally pull off any Prince song, the highs and lows.

the Revolution had him lead Head and I think 1 other song for the First Avenue reunion in 2013


Thankfully he is known more as an artist, than someone who just covers Prince songs.

Anyone know who the two folks on the left are? I think that's Tyka's husband Maurice, Tyka, and son Pres to right. They look good, happy to see them there.

I like Bilal (?) already it is better than AMA

I couldn't agree more. This is so much more genuine, loving, and satisfying. Much more appropriate to Prince's impact on the world of music and his influence to gererations of artists. BET has thus far done a very well. Even if I don't like all of the performers, they have produced a VERY good show so far. Bravo and gratitude to BET for giving Prince his propers. heart

Yep! Bilal's heart was in it, so I dug it.

Well, I just cried my fucking eyes out. Erykah is queen. Bilal did justice. But when he started rolling on the ground I realized I'm never going to see him again.

I'm not ashamed to say I love this song. But not sure it's the right song for Stevie? hmmm Also not sure why they've chosen to hew so close to how Prince sang it live. Hmm...
