There were the naysayers, the haters and the diehard fans who said that Purple Reign would fail because Vegas has too many tribute shows. But has Prince EVER let us down?? I didn't think so. Jason Tenner has been performing his Prince tribute show in Las Vegas for more than a decade. What began as a lark in 1996 for this singer has transformed into a live replica of Prince's greatest hits and moves. Tenner watched Prince's movies and videos on repeat until he could mimic Prince's exact movements and expressions. To perfect his voice to sound like Prince, he would sit in his home studio, record, and replay, over and over again, fine-tuning himself. This is dedication people, and because of this, fans can still party like it's 1999.

But thanks to their exposure of winning "America's Got Talent," Terry Fator has capitalized on his success and now headlines in Vegas with essentially a puppet show.
