Bruno Mars’ Grammys Tribute To Prince Was Exceptional
At the Grammys last night, Bruno Mars and The Time joined forces to play tribute to the late, great Prince.
In a lively, buoyant performance, The Time performed two of their hits (Jungle Love and The Bird, both co-written and produced by Prince), before Mars came out to sing Let’s Go Crazy.
While this tribute was announced about a week ago, the performers were kept secret until showtime, meaning that Mars’ appearance was a surprise.
People definitely seemed pleased to see him…
