Prince's 2017 GRAMMYs Tribute Was Glorious

After the Time, Mars took over for a rendition of Prince's full-tilt rave-up "Let's Go Crazy". The evening's Prince tribute kicked off with the Time's performances of "Jungle Love" and "The Bird". Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator of his Chanhassen, Minnesota home, and was later pronounced dead at the age of 57.

Bruno Mars, along with the band The Time, brought this tribute to Prince to life. It turned out that Mars was the one who sang the song. Members in the audience, including Snoop Dogg, Beyoncé, and Jay Z, joined in on the dance that "Jungle Love" inspired.

Mars, with guitar in hand, played out the climactic end to "Let's Go Crazy" alongside The Time, as the crowd of musician show-goers rocked along. D'Angelo performed a majestic version of "Sometimes It Snows in April" on Fallon shortly after Prince's death, but backed out of his leading role in the tribute at the BET Awards in June.
