The spirit of Prince was at the 2016 BET Awards tonight! There were Prince tributes performed throughout the entire awards show. Dave Chappelle began with a emotional intro and Erykah Badu & The Roots perform The Ballad of Dorothy Parker and Bilal followed with a performance of The Beautiful Ones, off album Purple Rain.
One of the biggest performances was the “Purple Rain” tribute sung by Jennifer Hudson. Dressed in all white hooded dress, Jennifer gives a stellar, powerful performance of the late legend’s classic hit.
Janelle Monáe added her energy singing Delirious, I Would Die 4 U, Kiss and Pop Life.
