Prince was at the 2015 Golden Globes to present the award for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture – a category he won in 2007 for his hit “The Song of the Heart” for animated feature Happy Feet. Before he could start reading off the list of nominees, Prince had to let the fawning celebrities recover from being star struck.
While the Golden Globe attendees were recovering, Twitter exploded with posts about Prince’s appearance.
