Prince invited a host of stars to join him on stage for a sold-out gig in New York.

The pop superstar called on the music and dance talents of Spike Lee, Jamie Foxx, Alicia Keys and The View presenters Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Sheppard as he performed at Madison Square Garden.

Prince, who recently left Sherri swooning after an appearance on her TV talk show, pretended to bolt from the stage when he mentioned her name before telling her: "Come on, Sherri. Dance with me, please. I wanna see what you really do."

The Purple Rain singer has two more dates left at Madison Square Garden - one later in December and another in January - as part of his Welcome 2 America performances.

As he left the stage following a standing ovation on Saturday night, he said: "This is my house now."
