Grammys 2013: Prince Presents Record of the Year to Gotye – Video

Music icon makes rare appearance, wins the Grammys by simply showing up

With all this talk about the big winners of the night at the 2013 Grammy Awards, it’s almost too easy to forget that Prince won the Grammys – and all he had to do was just show up.

Below is a video of the music icon making a very rare public appearance to present Record of the Year.

Sporting massive shades, a feathery leather jacket with a huge statement necklace instead of a shirt, a hoodie and a sparkly cane, Prince walked on stage to wild applause.

He handed the award to Gotye and Kimbra (for “Somebody That I Used to Know”), both of whom were gracious enough to turn their big moment into a tribute of sorts for Prince, who stood smiling on the side.

They were also completely overwhelmed by the honor done on them.

It was definitely a memorable moment – and a very sweet one as well. Check it out!
