Video: PRINCE Performs “The Beautiful Ones” On Lopez Tonight

Prince performed "The Beautiful Ones" for the very first time on Television on "Lopez Tonight" with dancer Misty Copeland.

This song holds a special place in my heart n I like Misty's dancing in it.

What do you think of the performance of this Prince classic?-Dr.FB

Lol^ Its ok you can keep changing you name to agree with yourself, project all your insecurities onto people who are trying to call you out and call them the very thing you are. Get help. I didn't think you'd have shit to say.

@salvatore2 - What happened is crazy Prince fans who hate any girl that Prince is with. It seems "shesastalker" is a stalker herself. What an idiot.

Prince's side girls?? You have been saying that for a while, do share? You seem to know. I dont know anything about "side girls" other then there seem to be eccentric fans who think they are and Bria often mentions "side girls" when she posts on here. Sounds like Prince is having fun! i looked and can vouch for what they are saying. Go find Freida Jackson on FB. She recently posted on Bra's Fb. Looks like they even created a fake spanish persona and write that way. I know many spanish friends whos mothers and fathers have accents but that doesnt mean they write how they talk AND, IN PERFECTLY written ENGLISH. She's stupid. They often deletes things though so all of her nuisances and attempts at harassing people, Im sure, have been deleted. That person is probably upset because its calling them out. This "LisaRedmonds" already got banned off the org so Id hush if I were you and find something useful to do with your time other then stalking Prince and his love interests. I doubt people are trippin off Bria anymore, and all the fans are happy but I understand when it seems she is going all over the internet ALLLLL day to make up rumors and say mean things about other women, she is eventually going to get called out. Enough is enough. Just know you aint hidden chile and Prince probably reads this stuff too

Don't believe everything you read. Some people like to start rumors with no evidence and it seems Bria is the target again. Maybe Misty's people are behind it maybe it's one of Prince's side girls. I think this person wants to keep Bria out of the picture and will be happy with anyone but her next to Prince namely Misty. Something fishy going on here and maybe Prince is still involved with Bria somehow. Why make the effort to gossip on her if she was not a threat? Where is the proof your accusation is true and why do you care enough to make such an emotional rant?

@youcanseeit- Hey Bria, why dont you stop going all over the internet and hating on Misty or any other girl you think Prince is dating. Its old like you and You are pathetic. Find something to do other than coming on the internet everyday and putting all this negative energy towards other people. You also go on whosdatedwho.com and take the time to repeat yourself. You said the exact same thing about them looking like "Bert and Ernie" there, not to mention commenting about how their height makes them look like a midget couple?? Ok. I wonder who'd have a problem with Prince being with a woman who isnt tall? Lol. Jealous hater! You find a way to delete comments that reveal the truth about you there so I will repeat here: "Beware of the B Valente camp. She creates pseudo names all over the internet to praise herself but hate on others then cry victim when people call her out. She has a fake facebook page under the name "Freida jackson" and she uses it to "blast" any dirt she pretends to find on other women she thinks Prince is dating. All comments pertaining to the status of Prince and Bria are from Bria herself on whosdatedwho.com. Why do you think the profile is so lengthy? Lame, lame, lame. Thank God Prnce does not claim her anymore. Im glad he's moved on with a girl like Misty. She has way more class and is much more of a woman. Move on with your life already!

"So bring it on, i've been bruised don't give me love thats clean and smooth. I'm ready 4 the rougher stuff! No sweet romance I've had enough..... It made me think of this Elton song 4 some reason?? "I want love, just a deferent kind, I want a love that wont break me down, wont break me up, wont fence me in.... Misty's great for what she is she just doesn't feel him, musically anyway imo??

Well he has been recently seen with a few sexy gorgeous women. Just not dancing for him on stage.

I thought Misty was incredibly boring. Her choreography was stagnant and repetitive. She is talented but Ive seen much more graceful/interesting ballerinas. All she does is kick and twirl here and there. Get a new ballerina or dancer/idea because the Twinz are boring too. Hell why not just bring back Mayte? Although the choreography for the Twinz has improved I didnt think Prince was known for going back in time and repeating himself, unless he had no other options. *shrug* Theres also no beauty around Prince anymore. I am used to seeing gorgeous women around him. Both Misty and the Twinz are average. He is starting to lose my interest as a performer.

Song is great and Prince is great. Misty is ok but her dancing leaves nothing memorable or exciting. This duo just does not do it for me.

Great show on Lopez. Loved it. Prince is great and so is Misty. Quit the negative comments. I'm sure you could do better!.Was wondering if they were the Twinz..LA is going to be fabulous. !

This version was beautiful as how I remembered it at W2A series. Esp. loved the stacatto piano intro! But I agree with the constructive criticism. I've felt this way the first time I saw Misty Copeland in the Crimson & Clover video and I'm glad others are finally saying it as well. Hey... Who wants to be Negative Nancy? IMO: + Misty Copeland is an extremely talented ballerina for how late she started and how fast she came to be a professional. It was nice to see the show showcased a little more of her talent: turns, point, lines. If you look her up on youtube, you might understand how talented she is. - What she's missing is that seductive factor that would compliment Prince. Check her out in Don Quixote. It's a dance that involves flirting with the audience. Her talent is there, but she isn't buying my love so easily. What it does to the duo? I'm feeling a lack of onstage chemistry between Prince & Misty. Where is that electricity in the eyes? The body language? The wanting magnetism that would lock them tight from 15ft away? About him not singing as strongly like on the album version... lol. Maybe he didn't take that big of a breath as he thought he needed to! ROFL. He still hit those notes like he's suppose to. Ow! Overall, still a great performance and oh so satisfying.

The definition of chaos- doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. Misty is his attempt at creating a new Mayte. This performance lacked chemistry and Misty is no Mayte but then again he already did that so, this is the result. Mediocre

I love this song. Prince started off a bit rocky and he readjusted himself. I have to agree he's not the screamer that he used to be. This is the first time I saw Misty Copeland. Her performance was "meh". Yes, I've studied ballet (except pointe) and other forms of dance. She has lovely leg extensions and her pointe work is beautiful, however the choreography was bland. She is a pretty girl doing turns, extensions - but that was it. When she danced on piano, that was a bit more exciting. I felt she could have had more diversity (levels, stronger performance "gestures"). Now, when Prince started loosing up - the crowd got into it. We the people want to see Prince "get off".

Misty's role is overdone now, takes away from the emotion he could display toward the audience

His performance was amazing, I'm happy to hear you were able to join in the funk!! Misty is very talented, but definitely distracting.. Prince does fine all by himself and has no problem keeping our attention and capturing the feeling of funkiness!! I love that he mainly has an all female band as well and it just goes to show that our man can appreciate talent when he sees/hears it!!! Keep spreading the love!!

it was nice to hear this song again / if u have ever heard him do this song live back in the day (he was the best screamer at thie time) ud quickly hear why some say his vocals were a bit weak on this song. i'd have to agree but it still was nice to hear. he is bar none ONE of the best live acts today and his live shows are worth way more then $25 a head.......but am greatful he is making it so all can attend -- thanks Prince see u at the show!!! and was i looking right....he ditched his high-heels on this number, at least for this song....

I LOVED HIM but now that I think of it Misty seemed a little distracting. It's like the chemistry fizzled or something. Also her dancing seemed to go nowhere like she just kept twirling. HOWEVER, I really love the TWINZ as they fit more and more with the whole look. What about The Beautifiul Ones with the Twinz as they try to enrapture him and he deals with their dual sides?? One twin can be the good girl and the other the bad girl. I dont know, I just think JUSTME has a point. Dr Funkenberry TELL PRINCE WE LOVE HIM & WHERE THERE IS SMOKE, THERE IS FIRE. IF something is off its for a reason.... Nadeara a.k.a. Boblove

AGREED re Misty. Something was off with the ballet thing. I saw it in MSG & thought it was cool but kinda boring every night or if too many times. Dont get me wrong she is talented ...but on a ballet stage.

Muzic - the beginning sounded a bit shaky to me. Also, he doesn't screech as high as the album version. Still his energy, command and talent here and on the other two songs is exemplary. I still love him after all these years and discs. LA is indeed in for quite the treat!!! I tend to get some news from the org, ignoring the opinions. Seems like it's about tearing down things in hate and/or boredom. Yawn. Time for new directions...
