8 Artists Who Should Honor Prince at The Billboard Music Awards Alongside Madonna

8 Artists Who Should Honor Prince at The Billboard Music Awards Alongside Madonna

Today (May 11) the organizers behind the 2016 Billboard Music Awards have announced that Madonna will pay homage to Prince with an unforgettable performance.

Details surrounding her performance aren’t being shared but they promise it will be one of the highlights of this year’s BBMAs.

While we are excited for anything Madonna will do because she does know how to command a stage, we’re hoping she shares her tribute with these eight artists.

The Billboard Music Awards will air live at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Sunday, May 22 from TMobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Check out what other artists should honor Prince at the BMAs.


Janelle Monae

Monae has always been different with her style, music, and stage performance which is why she’d know how to honor Prince in a way he’d approve.

Erykah Badu

We’re a bit surprised Erykah Badu wasn’t asked to perform but maybe the BMAs have some more surprises up their sleeve and Badu is one of them.


Willow Smith

She may be young but her spirit is definitely Prince-inspired.


Esperanza Spalding

If Willow is a younger spirit of Prince then Spalding is definitely Willow’s older sister.

Tori Kelly

After seeing her slay the Smokey Robinson tribute, we know Kelly will do the same for Prince.

As long as Miguel leaves the leg kicks at home, we’d enjoy seeing Miguel hit the stage and pay homage to Prince.


A Prince Hologram

Let’s be honest, there is no one like Prince so why not put a hologram of the Purple One on stage so he can help honor himself.



Last but not least, is Beyonce. The way Bey performs on a stage is Prince approved. So while she may be on tour we think she can spare one night.
