We know. You had a horrible Throwback Thursday. You were left unimpressed with the “old” photos in your Instagram feed. #TBT on Twitter failed to fill your vintage cup. Lucky for you, we found this: footage of James Brown, Michael Jackson and Prince on stage, together, at an award show in 1983.

Watch as a young Michael humbly accepts Mr. Brown’s invitation to join him on stage. He shows off just a little bit before quietly making a suggestion to his mentor. That suggestion was to invite Prince up on stage, too. And then magic happens.

Oh, and BB King was there, too. Still unimpressed? Then we can’t help you. Happy #TBT!

And while you’re still drooling, don’t forget to get your tickets to see Prince live at this year’s Essence Festival.
