On Sunday night, Madonna and Stevie Wonder paid tribute to the late Prince Rogers Nelson.
Introduced by Questlove, who likened Prince's death to an "earthquake," Madonna came out and performed "Nothing Compares 2 U" to open the tribute during the Billboard Music Awards.
Later, she was joined by Stevie Wonder — and the entire crowd — as she performed "Purple Rain."
While many enjoyed the performance — such as Celine Dion, who was watching from backstage — there was a slew of backlash.
The BET Awards took to Twitter to promote its own tribute performance and threw what many saw as shade at Madonna, saying, "Yeah, we saw that."
Upon seeing the promo and additional hate being thrown at Madonna, Questlove took to Twitter to try to shed some light on the comments being thrown around.
He emphasized that there will be many tributes to Prince, whose shoes will always be impossible to completely fill.
For lack of a better way of putting it, there will never be anything that compares to the late legend.
