Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards ended with Madonna performing a tribute to Prince, despite the efforts of a Change.org petition to stop her. She sang "Nothing Compares 2 U" (which was written by Prince), wearing a purple suit and carrying a cane, and was later joined onstage by Stevie Wonder, who sang "Purple Rain" with her.

Reactions were mixed, to say the least. The biggest diss was probably from the BET network, who, after Madonna's performance, tweeted a promo for their Prince tribute on June 26, featuring a video with text reading, "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We Got You." OUCH. Damn.
