Prince and Beyonce had a memorable Grammys moment

Prince and Beyonce Hey kids, the talented man in the purple suit is named Prince -- he used to be famous. And his searing ''Purple Rain'' medley with Beyoncé Sunday night was a reminder of what we've been missing during his lengthy retreat from the spotlight: Prince remains one of music's most magnetic performers, capable of shredding through a guitar solo like Jimi Hendrix, crooning like Al Green, and moving like James Brown. As for Beyoncé -- who won five awards (more than anyone else) and dazzled not just in this duet but in a powerfully sung rendition of her song ''Dangerously in Love 2'' -- well, she isn't bad either.
