Ready for that Purple Rain? Yes, in mere minutes we watch Let's Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince online.
The tribute concert to the iconic singer and musician is airing today (April 21) to mark the four-year anniversary of Prince's passing. The musicians who will honor the legend include John Legend, Common, Chris Martin, H.E.R., Foo Fighters and more.
Let's Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince starts tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern on CBS and CBS All-Access.
The two-hour special is hosted by comedian Maya Rudolph, who will also perform with her Prince cover band, Princess. The tribute concert was originally filmed at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Jan. 28, just two days after the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.

That was, of course, before most social distancing and quarantine regulations went into effect. And with most big concerts and performances canceled due to those rules, pre-taped music specials like the Prince tribute and remote events like the Disney Family Singalong and One World Together at Home are welcome beacons.
