BET Awards 2016: Watch Prince Tribute With the Roots, Erykah Badu, Bilal, and More

Tonight at the BET Awards, the Roots, Erykah Badu, and Bilal performed “The Ballad of Dorothy Parker” and “The Beautiful Ones” in honor of the late Prince. The night is set to feature more tributes to the Purple One, including a performance by Stevie Wonder. Back in May, BET mocked Madonna’s controversial Prince tribute at the Billboard Music Awards saying in a since deleted tweet, “Yeah, we saw that. Don’t worry. We got you.” Stevie Wonder and Questlove, who performed tonight, were also involved in Madonna’s tribute. Questlove was quick to defend Madonna’s performance on his Twitter, saying “Every Prince rendition will not be a life changing orgasmic xperience. Just to SING his work is brave enough.”
