QUOTE
The Queen of Pop will pay homage to another member of music royalty, Prince, at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

Organizers today announced Madonna's participation in what promises to be one of the highlights of this year’s BBMAs. The legendary pop singer will pay tribute to her good friend and fellow artist, who unexpectedly passed away April 21 at the age of 57. Details on her tribute to the late music great remain a closely-guarded secret.

Going to be an incredible moment, much like her tribute to Michael Jackson at the 2009 VMAs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4aQatsyz-Q

Oh yes you're right! But even a speech would be a total moment. I got ahead of myself, apologies kink.gif

I literally just squealed when I saw the title! Likelihood is that it will just be a speech (it's not like her to perform outside of an album era, not in recent years anyway) but, like you say, even that would be great if it's anything like the MJ VMAs one. Just please don't let it be a 'Love Song' performance if she is performing.

She did post some lyrics from 'Love Song' on IG last night but yeah I wouldn't want that to be the big performance if there is one...

Not sure how long this will remain but, for now, here's the full performance: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4c2y2z_m...ic-awards_music



Great outfit! Apparently social media response was pretty brutal though. I agree the vocals weren't great but the song was far too big for her.

I thought she sounded pretty bad, it just isn't her song sad.gif I can't decide if i like the outfit or not, but it's a big step up from the met gala.

I don't think she was as awful as some people are making out, but it was certainly a pretty bad performance. As others said, she picked a song that was totally out of
her vocal range.

It would probably have been a whole lot better if she didn't try to sing it like Prince (and Sinead) did and put her own spin on it that makes her own ballads so special.

She should have done it with just a guitar, the arrangement was odd
She sounded so country singing this

I understand why she chose this song but Sinead made it more famous than prince , many people think she was singing the Sinead version....

I think people wanted a spectacle

To be honest, I thought it was fine. She looked a bit like someone had cum glitter all over her and her vocals weren't AMAZING, but it was a nice tribute to Prince. The reaction on social media in general is pretty much typical of whatever she does these days. I know I was very harsh on the MET Gala outfit, but at this stage she's damned if she does, damned if she doesn't really.
