PRINCE along with the NEW POWER GENERATION, 3RDEYEGIRL, and JANELLE MONAE closed out a 3 night affair at the Mohegan Sun Arena with quite a bit of flair.
The purple icon took the stage with Janelle earlier in the night to perform their duet "Givin' Em What They Love" and he was rolled out on a dolly!
PRINCE & The NEW POWER GENERATION along with 3RDEYEGIRL played 3 rocking shows at the Mohegan Sun Arena, ending the night affair last night.
Prince performed a mesmerizing version of "Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)" and put it up for the world to see. For now.
You might want to check out the video early and often because it may not be up for long!

PRINCE also teased the crowd, asking what they are doing New Years Eve? Will keep you updated if we get any more info on a New Years Eve show from the icon.
The Super Bowl airs on Fox Feb. 2nd, 2014.
The cast of "New Girl" will be graced by music royalty as Prince will appear on the show playing himself. The premise for the show is to be centered around his notorious star-studded house parties where he performs so you might be seeing even more stars on this show. Will his new band 3RDEYEGIRL be with him?
For the past week, Hollywood Insiders have been buzzing about this news although confidentiality agreements were in place. Even Hannah Simone who plays CeCe on the show had to hint about the "Big Deal Alert" last night and Prince retweeted it this morning via @3RDEYEGIRL
Big Deal Alert! Exciting news coming tomorrow.....
— Hannah Simone (@HannahSimone) December 12, 2013
A source, speaking on anonymity told DrFunkenberry.com exclusively "Prince actually reached out to the show. He is a big fan and wanted to do it. We were blown away and agreed immediately."
Prince is no stranger to the acting medium, starring in the hit movie "Purple Rain" in which he won an Oscar for "Best Soundtrack".
This is the music legend's First Sitcom Network Television Debut.

Diagnosis: N'awlins was rocking in 2004 when PRINCE took the stage for the festival then. Prince provides his own fireworks as you will see July 4th, 2014!!!
PRINCE has released a new demo entitled "Da Bourgeoisie" and like last month's "The Sweeter She Is" live rehearsal track, it was given to a Twitter follower to get out!
Around 1:41 A.M., 3RDEYEGIRL (Prince's official Twitter account) asked "Who wants to deliver this stolen Prince demo to the needy?" Hmm. To instead of 2. No caps lock issue. People were responding to the tweet with a frenzy....until one was chosen.

Jshua was asked for his email address and sent the demo. Cool deal.
The photo of the moment is of PRiNCe caught by Madison Dubé. This brilliant black and white shot is up close and way intense.
This shot was posted to Madison's Instagram page.
Madison had this to say along with the picture:
"We can't wait to show you the rest of the magic. #Prince"
We LOVE the shot! Classic!
