5. Prince shows them how it is done
By far one of the best moments of the night came courtesy of a man who hasn’t even been on the charts in a while.
Prince took to the stage with a new look and celebrated being presented with the Icon Award with a medley of his hits “Let’s Go Crazy” and “FixUrLifeUp.” He appeared to be channeling Jimi Hendrix with his Afro and wicked guitar riffs while being backed by an all-female band.
The crowd took his advice and did, indeed, go crazy.
In addition to Swift, Rihanna and Gotye were also big winners of the evening. Visit Billboard.com for a complete list of winners.
