Hosted by Jimmy Fallon, the show rounded up all of Prince’s performances on SNL, and also featured footage of him performing “Let’s Go Crazy” at last year’s 40th anniversary party, backed up by a crowd that included Chris Rock, Bill Murray, Maya Rudolph and others.

The performances included “Party Up,” from 1981, “Electric Chair,” from the show’s 1989 15th anniversary special, “Fury” and “Beautiful, Loved and Blessed” from 2006, and “Clouds,” “Marz” and “Another Love” from 2014. You can watch them all now at NBC.com.

The show also featured all the Prince Show skits the show had ever aired over the years, which featured Fred Armisen as a reclusive and eccentric Prince, hosting a talk show with Rudolph as his co-host, Beyonce.

According to Variety, the ratings for the SNL Prince tribute scored the highest numbers for an episode airing in the spring since 2013.
