Fresh off the release of her first solo album after Destiny's Child went on hiatus, Beyoncé's solo career was just starting to take off, thanks to the incredible success of her debut single, "Crazy In Love." At 22-years-old, she had -- and still has -- a lifetime of work ahead of her.

Prince, who was 45 years old at the 46th Annual Grammy Awards, had released more groundbreaking and genre-defying hits than could be counted.
It was a natural pairing of talent: Younger and older, male and female, influencer and influencer.
The incredible performance, which opened the show and will always be considered one of the most memorable Grammy moments of all-time, started with Prince singing perhaps the biggest hit of his career, "Purple Rain," as the crowd went wild.
After the first chorus, Beyoncé's voice filters in and she quickly joins the legend on stage. With Prince clad in bright purple, and Beyoncé clad in bright feathery prink, they look incredible together.

Then, the pair moves to the B-stage and breaks into a dazzling rendition of another one of Prince's biggest songs, "Baby I'm A Star." Their auras are palpable as they get back-to-back and share a microphone for the hit's biggest notes. Beyoncé grabs a tambourine and Prince slays it on the guitar.
The performance ends with a fiery rendition of a final Prince hit, "Let's Go Crazy," with the two superstars jumping around on stage, smiling and delivering insane vocal runs that only they were capable of. Seeing them on stage together, it's clear that Beyoncé was directly inspired by Prince's unique persona and stage presence.
His influence will be felt for years to come in music and beyond.
