Prince Kills It on SNL- (no surprise) : SEE IT
I love watching Prince perform so when his SNL performance started and he was playing the keyboard my heart sank a bit. For a fleeting moment I thought he might stay on the keys and not grace us all with his prowess as the guitar god he is. Thankfully my fear was unwarranted. Sporting an afro and 3rd eyed hippie shades he was backed by 3rdeyegirl (the all female trio consisting of the Canadian guitar player Donna Grantis, American drummer Hannah Ford and Danish bassist Ida Nielsen) and assorted musicians. They performed a medley of "Clouds"- Prince's duet with La Havas from Art Official Age and Marz and Anotherlove from Plectrumelectrum.
Prince absolutely killed it. My favorite song in the medley was Anotherlove with (for me) harkins back to the Purple Rain period. I am also amazed how damn good Prince looks. He has obviously found the fountain of youth and still flashes a 19 year old smile. Check it out below.
