Fans were treated to a spectacularly special moment late on Sunday, when Mary J. Blige was joined onstage by none other than living legend Prince.

Prince provided the guitar for Blige's rousing rendition of "Sweet Thing" before the two broke into a soulful version of "Nothing Compares 2 U," the song Prince penned for Sinead O'Connor in the '80s. The duo even invited the audience to chime in on the chorus.
