Only Prince was worthy enough to perform alongside both The King of Pop and James Brown at the same damn time.
As well as Stevie Wonder (whose song Prince took to new heights).
Flash forward to his recent Welcome 2 America tour.
A moment of silence for that time he shared the stage with Lenny Kravitz.
Also, when his guitar solo showed us that his Hall of Fame induction was well-deserved (not that we ever doubted him).
Enjoy this throwback to when he was on The Arsenio Hall Show!
Then, when he reminded the world that his powers had the ability to also bring beauty to the work of other artists
He didn't even need to be on stage to electrify our hearts.
