Prince and Cee Lo Green Share the Stage At Madison Square Garden

Prince and Cee Lo Green set the stage on fire in their performance of "Crazy." The performance took place at Madison Square Garden in New York during Prince's Welcome 2 America Tour in February of last year. "Crazy," of course, is the 2006 smash by Gnarls Barkley, the dynamic musical duo made up of Cee Lo and ace musician/songwriter and producer Danger Mouse. Cee Lo's vocals were in top form during the performance, sounding a bit more gritty than on the original recording. And Prince lays down a sensational guitar solo. It seems that he's doing more guitar solos in his concerts these days, which is awesome. I also like the Purple One's continued practice of bringing talented well-known performers on stage to perform a song with him during his shows.

Additionally, Prince's band, the New Power Generation, were on-point as usual. I think these two talented, creative cats should record some music together. The pairing could potentially produce something epic.
