2020 GRAMMYs: Usher, Sheila E. & FKA Twigs Honor The Purple One With A Prince-Themed Medley
Usher kicked off the performance with a soulful rendition of "Little Red Corvette." The R&B superstar was accompanied by master drummer and Prince’s former protege, Sheila E., and ran through two other recognizable hits in The Purple One’s lauded catalog "When Doves Cry" and "Kiss," which won the GRAMMY for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 1987.
As expected, Usher gave the audience a taste of his dance skills, performing with a talented group of movers and shakers. Singer and dancer FKA Twigs also brought sensuality to the performance, as she captured the audience with an extraordinary pole dance during "When Doves Cry."
The performance was done in anticipation of the Recording Academy's upcoming Prince tribute special Let’s Go Crazy: The GRAMMY Salute to Prince, which will take place on Jan. 28, and will be broadcast at a later date.
