Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through Madonna’s much-hyped performance honoring Prince at the Billboard Music Awards.

Many were unhappy with the singer’s tribute to Prince Rogers Nelson on Sunday night, which featured Stevie Wonder and a lot of purple. Prior to the show, fansstarted a Change.org petition to stop the “Material Girl” from performing.

After the tribute, Twitter attacked Madonna for her lackluster showing, and BET made sure people knew its tribute to the “Purple Rain” singer would be much better.

BET tweeted out a link to their own Prince tribute, with a video that showed the words, “Yeah, we saw that. Don’t worry. We Got You.”
