Questlove to Say A Few Words About Prince at 2016 Billboard Music Awards
One of the most anticipated performances at tonight’s 2016 Billboard Music Awards is Madonna’s tribute to music icon Prince. While there have been some protest over the pop diva honoring the late guitarist by herself, it appears there will be another musician joining her for the tribute.
According to Billboard, Roots drummer Questlove will be joining the Material Girl during her tribute to the Purple One. Madge personally requested Questo to share a few words about Prince. His introduction will lead into Madonna’s performance at the star-studded ceremony.
There’s no word on what song the 57-year-old veteran singer will perform. Online fans have been speculating that Madonna would perform her 1989 duet with Prince called "Love Song" from her Like a Prayer album. But again, nothing has been confirmed.
As for Questlove, if you are a follower of his Instagram account, then you would know that he's very knowledgeable about Prince's music. Recently, he shared some of his anecdotal stories about the late icon. So his speech will definitely be a nice touch to Madonna's performance.
The 2016 Billboard Music Awards will air live from Las Vegas at 8PM ET on ABC.
