    Hmmm. Like the others have mentioned: LG On Bass, Chaka, Morris & The Time(Original Line Up), Shelia E, Patti Labelle, Jill Scott,Rosie Ganes, Revolution (reunion),Santana, Stevie on keyboards, Maxwell, LK. Plus, I’ll also throw Ceelo, and Stokley of Mint Condition in the mix.

    I want to see Prince do his own music. However, I think seeing Jonny Lang, Lenny K., John Mayer, Maxwell, and Outkast would be cool.

    I want to see Prince to his own tribute, like the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Maybe, Lenny, Jonny Lang, John Mayer, Maxwell and Outkast.

    A. Black Artist for Tribute: Lenny Kravitz, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Maxwell, Erykah Badu, Outkast, D’Angelo, Jill Scott, Janelle Monae & The Dream (what a line up!)

    B. Non-Black Artist for Tribute: No Doubt/Gwen Stafani, MGMT, Justin Timberlake, Fall Out Boy & Santana (showing how much his music has crossed over & influenced new genres).

    Ya’ll know there is no way Prince will allow anyone to perform his songs. He will do it himself.

    The only person I want to see perform at the awards is Prince himself…..no one can do his music better than him 🙂

    I’d love to see Lenny Kravitz, Kip Blackshire, Sheila E, Rosie Gaines, Nikka Costa, Beyonce, Eric Clapton, Slash, The Time and Patti LaBelle.

    I think Prince would probably get a kick out of having Larry G and Chaka there as well.

    I’d love to see Beyoncé do a full blown version of ‘God’.

    Stevie Wonder singing Purple Rain would be awesome.
