Twitter Is Torn Over Usher's Prince Tribute At The Grammys

Even though it's been a few years since we lost Prince, that doesn't stop the Grammys from paying tribute to one of the most beloved artists of all time.

In April 2016, Prince died of an accidental overdose.

The world, his family and his friends mourned the loss of the iconic star.

The world was changed by his music and presence.

And for years, people have wanted to do a tribute.

There have been some, like at the Superbowl and whatnot, but none that were truly worthy of Prince.

Then, they announced they were going to do a tribute to him at this year's Grammys.

And it was Usher.

Usher, the man who gave the world "Yeah" (and arguably changed the aforementioned world for the better) was going to do a tribute to the one, the only: the artist formerly known as Prince.

Usher was announced to give the tribute to Prince, but Twitter had tons of mixed feelings about it.

Some people thought he did an amazing job and even dressed to fit the role.

Usher started the performance with "Little Red Corvette."

Sheila E. and FKA Twigs joined him.

He also sang "When Doves Cry" and "Kiss." Needless to say, he sang it beautifully.

He also performed with a number of talented dancers.

And of course, Usher showed off some of his fantastic moves that he has been using for years now.

The tribute was done to prepare people for the upcoming Prince tribute titled "Let's Go Crazy: The GRAMMY Salute to Prince."

And while it was something people were looking forward to, not everyone enjoyed Usher's performance.

A lot of people thought it was just NOT good.

Obviously, the two artists have very different styles and voices, but all things considered, we think he did a great job!

But Twitter? Not so much.

In fact, some people are having trouble understanding why he was chosen to do the tribute at all!

Come on Twitter, give him a break!

Who are we kidding? It's Twitter, and they are relentless.

But a couple of people were also conflicted over the performance for another reason.

During the performance, there was a stripper pole!

Fans had no idea why it was there.

Well, some were confused while others were just angry.

But then again, it wouldn't be Twitter if they weren't angry about something, right?

Well, haters, you talk a big game, but who would you have do the Prince tribute?

If you have any thoughts on who might have been a better pick, drop them in the comments at the end of the article!

Thankfully, it wasn't all bad!

Some people really enjoyed the performance and thought that the collaboration was well done!

But it wasn't exactly a popular opinion.

Here we see a guy who, rightfully, points out that it's pretty hard to do Prince.

It's a valid point.

At the end of the day, all Usher could have done was try his best, and considering he is a very talented singer, he gave an entertaining performance!

And of course, where there's Usher, there are thirst tweets.

This performance was no exception.

Some people weren't even caring much for the tribute since they were too busy lusting after Usher.

What did you think about Usher's performance?
