Let's Go! Bruno Mars (In a Sparkly Purple Suit) and The Time Pay Tribute to Prince
Bruno Mars performed Prince's 1984 hit "Let's Go Crazy" with aid from The Time
Mars, who also performed earlier in the show, took the stage in a sparkly, purple suit and white blouse, honoring the iconic artist‘s unique sense of style.
With every musician on the stage similarly outfitted, Mars crooned Prince’s 1984 hit “Let’s Go Crazy” after the song’s memorable spoken introduction played.
Before Mars took the stage, The Time – the Minneapolis funk group formed under Prince’s tutelage – performed their hits “Jungle Love” and “The Bird.”
Despite announcing a segment honoring Prince ahead of time, the Recording Academy had not shared which artists would participate before the telecast.
