  • miss infamous

    THe Prince tribute was garbage! THey did him no justice! And Alicia was wrong for climbing up on that piano when shes 5 months pregant

  • all you can read

    Alicia is one classy lady. Wish the young women of Hollywood would follow her lead in terms of being 1st class.

  • Courtney

    not yet she hasn’t but she’s engaged to be hopefully nothing happens to the baby a loss would be horrendous to deal with in public it isn’t like how it was in the old days when a star got privacy to deal with those kind of heartbreaking things

  • the truth

    It was a good tribute to him. And he really did enjoyed it. He wasn’t upset about each are the that paid Tribute tio him.Time was short and they had to show other people. He enjoyed all are them.

  • Katie T

    are you kidding me to whoever said Prince didnt enjoy this?! he sure looked like he thoroughly enjoyed it to me….He gave her a standing ovation…her and Patti were the only ones he stood for, jus anyways this was amazing as usual, I seriously can’t get enough of her!! and she looks so beautiful! this pregnancy is agreeing with her nicely :)

    ^woops idk why that posted twice..

  • Quit hatin

    She is gorgeous and articulate and smart and classy and multi-talented. And if I’m NOT mistaken Prince loves Alicia Keys.

  • Jermaine

    she looks sexier than she ever has

  • gemma

    @all you can read:

    She’s in the music industry. She’s not really an actress…..

  • Kelsi

    @Jermaine: So far! She’ll probably balloon in a few weeks LOL (btw, I hope her baby will be healthy)

  • ginagina

    Alicia is a friend of Prince. Patti too. I’m sure he enjoyed it.

  • Courtney

    I was drawing a comparison that’s all besides winning big awards like Grammy’s or Oscars used to be able to buy you privacy to grieve if something bad happened and you lost a pregnancy and Prince himself lost a child right after birth so he knows how painful it is

    look at this picture of Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward dancing at the governors ball after she won her oscar about 6 weeks after she miscarried their first child
    [IMG][/IMG] granted this was March 1958 back when the studios could cover those things up where they can’t now and Newman & Woodward did later have 3 daughters plus his son and 2 daughters from his first marriage granted between his oldest daughter from his first marriage Susan & his youngest with Joanne Claire there’s 12 years and 2 months right Susan was born February 21st 1953 and Claire was born April 21st 1965

    I love Alicia
    her voice and style always blows me away *-*
    but I’m not sure about Keri Hilson’s new hairstyle
    she needs to stop ripping off Rihanna’s style –’
    this is starting to get ridiculouss….
    get ur own personality girl, you’re so MUCH better than this ….

  • qball611

    Sorry Alicia lovers. I used to love her too but I lost a lot of respect for her when she decided to go after someone else’s husband then got pregnant right quick to seal the deal ( or so she thinks it will; after all he has 2 baby mama’s before her so I don’t know why she feels like she is so special) I thought she was a smart person. I just hope she’s able to live alone with her baby and consequences of her actions when he leaves her for the next new piece.

  • Shynum1

    If she had feel off that piano I would have been ROTF!!!! I know she is pregnant, but she has no business up on a DAYUM PIANO 5 months preggers. Come on now, all you idiots think her performace was great. What show were you watching, rolling all over the piano, cant keep a note. Everyone says she great, its very delusional shows how brainwashed you all are.

  • Princess

    For those of you who say the show was great need to have your eyes and ears checked!! Prince is a true legend. He deserved a much better tribute than that bulls&*^%it that aired last night! The tribute was NOT great. The man himself should have gotten up and brought the house down. I was more moved and left in awe by Stevie Wonder’s tribute. At least we got the opportunity to see Prince at his finest through all those years of excellent footage. It was amazing!

    You could tell by Prince’s expression that he was NOT impressed with some of those train wreck performances. Being the quiet, gentle spirit he is, he would never complain or judge. I was not happy with the show. Prince deserved so much more. BET did a terrible job of putting together that awful, pathetic tribute. Shame on you BET. Prince Rogers Nelson, The Legend, His Royal Badness
    The Purple One, is deserving of so much more!

    Princess: I Agree With You All The Way! No One Could Of Said/Wrote It Better Then You:)!!

    Prince is so great. The tribute could have been better. My opinion.Seemed like it was thrown together quickly..

  • LuvMyPeople

    I think Prince’s tribute was great. The tribute was real and he chose an all women ensemble to do the tribute because you know Prince love the ladies. The tribute was raw and real, it was also a celebration and appreciation of his music. Prince loved it!

    The only thing I saw that could have been improved was the length of time. It should have been longer and had more people give their input. But overall it was great and I enjoyed it! The ladies killed it!

    I will wait for the Kennedy Center honors for a longer tribute. God willing, I will be there when they announce the date!

  • Blaggg

    They did prince wrong with that one!!!! The only one I really think tore it up was Patti nd still prince was like WTF! Is this what it amounts too lol

  • danielle

    well I think overall the show was great was expecting more but…I still love Alicia K been 5 months and jumping and singning like that is great womennnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

  • Daren Truth

HWat i loed most was teh first laides performance i keep forgetting her name in fact i came here hoping to see her name. she alost made me cry. ok she did make me cry it was so fitting for her and she performed it to near perfectio in her own quirky but sexy style.

The second gal was s lower and a t first i didnt liek it but then i realized this too is some soulf ful sexy chick here. s trumming that guitar thang lol im so clueless i know but oh well… and it was so smooth… beautiful then aicia keys.. sexy as shes ever been quoting a nother comment… shoes off.. true she couldnt hit some notes but that woman seemed possessed by tthe song i felt her i felt she felt it and thats all you can ask for from a performance… she put it down.. pati labelle i never liked her adn was making fun of her makup and cursing them for having sing my beloved purple rain.. but omg when it was over…. diva reigns trey songs should just retire naw but dang man why they let him sing that song knowing she was gunna do that….. not cool not cool… true talent right there and what is she like 90… ?

  • jenevieve carson

    I agree when u said she is pregnant with a married mans baby…. I think that she should had been married to this man ..instead of getting pregnant so quickly. I lost my respect for her as well ..but you know…..

  • Synara

    @miss infamous: Alicia Keys can not get up on that piano like that anyway and not when she is pregnant like that and then she is going to move back and forth on the piano and then at the essence awards and she shouldn’t be wearing heels while she is pregnant and i heard that she fell flat on her butt and surprise that she didn’t loose her baby like that…
