One of these artists was Prince, and paying tribute to him was Bruno Mars, who-along with a glittery purple suit and a decent amount of hair product-led one of the most wonderful tributes of the night. He produced an enormous body of stunning work, much of which has been hard to find in recent years. When the curtain rose, it was Bruno Mars and the band founded by Prince himself, The Time that belted out his smash hit "Let's Go Crazy".
James Corden takes us back to Minneapolis 1985 where the sky is purple, glam meets fun and leather meets lace. Audience members like actor and comedian Shawn Wayans were showing off their best "jungle dance" moves in the crowd. He performed Prince's mega-hit "Let's Go Crazy", strapped with an electric guitar, and he did an awesome job honoring the Purple One as best he could with an incredibly funky performance.
February-like weather returns next week
Tuesday: A 20 percent chance of showers. 2010 Min Blizzard like Snow Event with visibility lowered below 1 mile in Blowing Snow. The best chances for showers will be west of a line roughly from Prescott to Flagstaff to the Four Corners.
There are so many people who could have done this tribute, but I think it is pretty safe to agree that Bruno mars was the star to tackle it. Among Prince's closest friends and frequent musical collaborators throughout his career, their presence made for a gratifying and galvanizing tribute to a pioneering figure whose impact still feels inimitable today. Fortunately, Bruno knows how to handle a guitar, too. (Hint: It's "gaga.") The Prince tribute at the 2017 Grammys was off to a great start. For some precious and unforgettable moments it seemed like yesterday, once again.
