Oh, OK FKA Twigs! Chick whipped out her pole dancing skills to perform alongside Usher and Shelia E during their Prince Grammy tribute. Check it inside…
Usher was tapped to pay tribute to late musical icon Prince along with his longtime friend/drummer Shelia E. The Grammy Award winning artist – decked out in a Jared Lehr necklace – tapped into his inner Prince to perform classics, “Little Red Corvette” and “When Doves Cry” as FKA Twigs showed off her pole dancing skills in the background. Chick def knew she was doing and we’re not mad.

Then, FKA took center stage with Usher to perform “Kiss” and served up all the sexy feels.
Get into their sultry performance below:
FKA didn’t sing after being named as part of the tribute, and that had some fans upset, so she hopped on Twitter following her performance to let them know she wasn’t offered the opportunity to sing during the performance.
However, Shelia E said backstage that FKA was offered the opportunity to sing, but she declined. “As far as [FKA] twigs, she didn’t want to sing,” Sheila said in the press room after the performance. “First she wanted to and then she didn’t want to when we ran through it because she didn’t have a pack and ears, so she couldn’t hear, and would rather have danced, which is what we asked her as well, and she chose not to.”
Maybe next year.
In a few days, another Prince tribute is happening. “Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince” will go down at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 28th, featuring performances by H.E.R., Common, Beck, Foo Fighters, Earth Wind & Fire, and more. Shelia E. will serve as the musical director alongside songwriting duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
It will air on television in April. Nice!
