So is this one bigger and better?
Erykah was subdued and surprisingly forgettable doing The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker... Bilal, on the other hand, really brought the spirit of the Purple One to the stage with his performance of The Beautiful Ones.
Next up, Tori Kelly joined Stevie Wonder -- who interestingly enough was also in Her Madgesty's BBMAs tribute -- for a performance of Take Me With U.
It was just OK... but then Jennifer Hudson took the stage and showed everyone how paying tribute is DONE.
Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing performers honoring the late artist starting with the Roots with Erykah and Bilal (below)!
