THROWBACK: Prince Rocks ‘SNL 40’ After Party
Prince would’ve turned 60 today (June 7), and we thought we’d celebrate his birthday with a video from another incredible birthday.
In 2015, Saturday Night Live turned 40, and cast members past and present, musicians and other entertainment giants honor this landmark moment with an outstanding TV special followed by the after party to end all after parties.
Well into the after-party, Prince magically appears and takes to the stage to perform “Let’s Go Crazy,” which he playfully kicks off with the modified lyrics, “Dearly inebriated.” On stage with him at various moments is Maya Rudolph, HAIM, Martin Short, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Rock, Cuba Gooding Jr., Emma Stone and Bill Murray, and it’s just one of those things you have to see to believe.
