Millions were glued to their televisions last night for 2016’s Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs). Celebrities, fashion, glitz, glamour, and most of all music dominated the night. The show was chalked full of some amazing performances by The Weeknd (Who now has more wins than any artist in BBMA history!), Pink, Rihanna, and Celine Dion. The latter two truly stole the show with their vocals! However, the most anticipated performance of the night was set to be Madonna’s tribute to the late, great, and legendary artist, Prince. Needless to say her performance was highly criticized. Check it out below.
Right…Madonna and Stevie Wonder are both legends, but they are not the best choice to deliver a tribute to Prince. This man was vivacious! A real slayer of the stage, where he was like a knight with sword, killing the audience with his guitar! Nothing Compares To You should have been replaced with something more upbeat. We should be celebrating this man’s life and closed out with Purple Rain. Honestly, an artist like The Weeknd or Beyonce would have done this tribute proper.
Madonna’s performance was rather boring and rather underwhelming. The purple motif and costumes were on fire though. We are not throwing shade, however, we are saying that BET does tributes better–and they know it too! Check out the shade they threw at Madonna’s tribute right after.
