The legend that was Prince had more than his fair share of magic moments - here are just five of our favourites...

1. His very last song.

Prince performed Purple Rain as his last song at his last ever gig in Atlanta last week on his Piano & A Microphone tour.  Nobody realised at the time how poignant the footage would be just a few days later...


2. That time he kicked Kim Kardashian off the stage.

He was performing at Madison Square Garden in 2011 when he invited various audience members on stage to have a little dance.  However, when Kim Kardashian arrived up she was so awkward that Prince appeared to get bored and kicked her off with an unceremonious, "Get off the stage!".

Kim arrives at about 35 seconds...


3. One of the best guitar solos of all time

This guitar solo at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert back in 2004 will go down in history.  Prince stole the show on stage with Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne and Steve Woodward for While My Guitar Gently Weeps...


4. That time he became a symbol.

In 1993 he changed his to this symbol which he explained as a combination of symbols for male and female.  Warner Bros had to send floppy discs with the custom font to the media but they just ended up calling him 'The Artist Formerly Known as Prince'.




5. That Oscar speech.

He arrived on stage in a glittering navy cloak and introduced his lady friends as Lisa and Wendy as he accepted his 1985 Oscar for Best Original Score for Purple Rain.
