Here's How Much Prince's Fans Aren't Here for Madonna's Billboard Awards Tribute

Find out how they're making sure she doesn't hit that stage.

Published May 14th

The 2016 Billboard Music Awards are around the corner, and on the performance roster is Madonna who is confirmed to do a performance tribute in the late Prince's honor. As the news was made public, fans of the Purple One were not impressed with the BBMA's selection, creating a petition to get them to make a "better choice."

The Change.org petition reads, "We cannot let Madonna be the main and only artist tributing Prince during the 2016 Billboard Awards. He is more than worthy of a better choice as a main performer. Please sign and share this petition so that we can get a proper tribute."

So far, the petition has racked up more than 2,000 supporters, and the numbers are only growing. 

Do you think they have a point? Should Madonna be joined by other artists to honor Prince or should they replace her altogether?

Find out what happens when the 2016 Billboard Music Awards airs on May 22, 2016.
