At a ceremony at Alexandra Palace in London, Beyoncé Knowles inducts Prince into the UK Music Hall of Fame. Having left his 3121 gig in Las Vegas to attend, Prince makes an appearance to collect the award but does not perform.
Joni delivers a video message to Prince from The Lev Moross Gallery where her Green Flag Song photo art exhibit can be seen in the background. A nervous Prince also recognizes Joni in his acceptance speech.
Joni: Prince. The most amazing performer I have ever witnessed. He gave the best parties in Hollywood, probably in the world and I know I'm missing a great one tonight. I wish I was there. I just think its splendid that they're honoring you in England. Congratulations.
Prince: These days when I meet young artists I try to hip them to the words of Joni Mitchell, and the tightness of Tower of Power, and the arrangements of Earth, Wind & Fire.
