  1. Amazing live performance, when I saw it it took all my ill judgement of Prince away. It helps that the song is one of the best of all time.

    1. Ha, yes, him performing THAT particular song makes a big difference. I’ve never been into his music that much, but there’s no question about his talent/genius.
