The Internet Wasn't Pleased With Madonna's Prince Tribute

The internet was a tough judge during the Billboard Music Awards Tribute to Prince with Madonna at the helm. 

Somehow, we think that all of the internet took on shade+ to Madonna's (albeit, sort of flat-sung) performance.

Even with Stevie by her side, it still didn't quite give us what we were looking for. Nor did it give the Internet what it wanted, as you can see below. Who knew there were that many shade gifs of Prince out there:

Horrible tribute to Prince on #BBMAs - where was Prince family. Prince an ICONIC figure deserved better. Damn shame!

The #BBMAs Prince tribute is a joke. You don't have Sheila E or the surviving members of The Revolution on there? Child, boo!

@Madonna singing "Nothing Compares 2 U" was a SLAP IN THE FACE to @prince NOT a tribute #BillboardMusicAwards #BBMAs https://t.co/tiO9F7tdQ0

 

The internet has spoken.
