The Purple One would have approved.

A Prince tribute can only go one of two ways: either you nail it or you don't. There's no in between. Lucky for Bruno Mars, his big moment was a success.

During the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mars paid homage to the late, great Prince. The 31-year-old Grammy-winning artist joined forces with The Time to perform some of the legend's greatest hits like "Jungle Love," "The Bird," and "Let's Go Crazy."

Many people took to social media to rejoice about the remarkable tribute while remembering the Purple Rain artist, who the world devastatingly lost in 2016. BET's Stephen G. Hill and TV personality A.J. Calloway were spotted in the audience grooving to the tunes. 

Prince won seven Grammys in his lifetime before he died at the age of 57 from accidental fentanyl overdose. May he continue to rest in paradise.
