Prince was a GENIUS!! He still lives on through Morris Day & The Time!! These songs are still FIRE to this day!! This was AWESOME!!
I feel Prince took ha lot from him. Although Prince is a master.
Morris wasn’t trying to steal anything, he was always on tour before Prince died.
MJ’s a diddler !
Prince made them go by,”The Original 7” which to many of Morises fans were second guessing the new name! As much as I like the,”purple one” he treated Moris bad cuz he feared (. Purple Rain) Moris would surpass him after the huge reception of the movie!
FACTS those were his boys
Man, I could not stop smiling throughout this entire performance. I love Morris Day and The Time! ❤️
Me as well.
Yes! I miss the 80’s & 90’s! Great performance! 👏🏾👏🏾🙌🏾😆
Same here, you couldn’t help but move your body !!! Back when Prince, Morris Day & The Time, Vanity, Tina Marie were rocking it !!!
If you’re an 80’s baby you know how legendary this is 🔥🔥🔥
I'm a late 90s baby n I was excited I love Prince and Morris day and the time..my gma was laughing cause I was doing the dances lol
Us 70s babies know too! Lol! 🔥 🔥 🔥
'65. Love the Minneapolis Family! Great music!
GenXer here. I was a kid in the 70s, and a teen in the 80s! This was my ish during my high school years!
The walk to the stage was just too cool. These cats are timeless. Salute
The walk up is the best...lol
I hope they perform until the wheels fall off
Swag was on blast. Pimp AF
The height of professional music, wow these guys have incredible energy, even after all these years. Prince is smiling hard 🌟
I saw Morris Day and the Time back in 2021. They were incredible.
Eat well take care yourself try live stress free away from toxic people you'll age graciously as well!!!
Jerome and Morris still look good after all of these years.
@Michael Dorgan just eat healthy!
I need to find out what these brothers are eating...they don't age 😀
In my Morris Day voice..."Jesse..n-now Jerome...YAAASSS"! If u a true fan....u will know exactly what I'm talking about!
@pauledwdz its def Jerome Benton and I dated his daughter for years. I know my pops when i see him
@pauledwdz yes it is
Chile 40 years later & Morris & The Time still doing tha Bird" 😂😂😂I love it. 80's babies style
@Tulsa Caupain you living the life wish l was you.lm 57 no money bad legs feet can't work living ln ghetto Atlanta lm ready die.Oh wish l was you
I wonder if you’ll ever raad this. Iam58 and living in Amsterdam, having a great time for the umpteenth time.
Nice real nice they need keep camera own the artist.Who cares who in crowd l don't.
Good Gawd 🙌🏾
@Joy Hervey they don't make music like this no more
Man! That’s how you control a room and rock a party! That performance felt like a party! He still showing out! LOVE IT!
Big facts.. it had a real soul train vibe! It was a party!
This is how my generation had fun. Good music and dancing, no fights or shootings at a party. Just everyone having a good time.
Morris Day & The Time , it doesn’t get old !! Excellent live performance!! Well done Brothers !! Take a bow !! Well deserved!!
@CRYSTAL SWIRLZ 😎✌️
@CRYSTAL SWIRLZ I ask questions.
@Robert Morrisey don't ask questions....have a seat and watch what cool looks like!
.. oooops 🤪! Loved the lovely ladies immensely! 😍
I agree! My question is why does Morris have dudes dancing behind him mimicking his every move? .. just sayin'
Morris and the guys still got it, they're still "C-O-O-L" 💯🔥🔥🔥🔥
Keeping it classy. Suits and ties. This is how it can be done. You can perform with clothes. What's been out the last 15 or 20 years has been like a contest on who can wear the least clothing. Self respect never goes out of style.
Da Baby in his diaper would disagree. smdm…
Just the way they walked out on stage tho🔥🔥🔥C.O.O.L🥰
NO half nakedness, NO sexual gyration and NO sexual assimilation. NO profanity or demonic looking scenes and they are all in their sixties but totally rocked the house! Nobody does it like the old schoolers!
What the hell was 3:05???? Dude your tripp’n What’s wrong with the human body and nudity.
@MCWAY1 Was just gonna write same. Starion must be from another planet and thrust sideways or use his/her ears or nose to procreate.
And no sagging pants or thugs holding up gang signs. This was a time when guys dressed sharp and carried themselves like gentlemen from a GQ magazine, with style and class.👍
@Barbara Carroll Indeed. But they (the dancers) kept it PG. No lesbian crotch grinding or anything off the wall. Morris Day and the Time put on quite the performance.
I saw them live twice with Prince in the 80's.
They still sound good.
They were all that back then, and they are still cookin with fire today!
And they still look good. I Remember before Prince ascended to the heavens and did that Super Bowl half time show I was jealous as fk. I wonder what is in their diets?
Morris Day and The Time’s music is feel good music that puts you in a good mood
Morris Day is always on point.
Morris & Jerome have always been entertaining. Saw him a few times in concert. He never dissapoints 😊
They hit the stage like two BOSSES! From the very first second the crowd layed eyes on them, they had already killed it.
You can see where Bruno Mars was partially inspired and incorporated this legend into his performances....Respect to those who have paved the way for the young generation...100%
I think it aint paved thats just the way, some of the younger or new generation is RESPECTING it
Least Calvin Harris gave props
@Digital LHM Seriously. Impersonating is more like it.
Sorry but Bruno will never come close to Morris Day and the time. They are stylish and very cool and talented. MINNESOTA GROWN...
@Terri WilliamsBelieve or not the moon walk s originated in the 1940. I watch old flicks of the 1940’s dancers moon walking. Nothing new under the sun😁.
I can't believe it's been 40 years since these bad boys had hit the stage my boys Morris Day and The times remember as a kid just idolizing these guys and with Prince Morris and Jerome one of the greatest duos man and Morris Day still got it and Jerome. 🥇💯💯💯👑
I saw them in concert in long beach recently it was one of the best performances I've ever seen.
That's incorrect. Morris Day and The Time were part of The Controversy World Tour with Prince in 1981.
Damn, Morris sounds great as does the entire band. This is so good it tickles. A real time machine back to the 80s.
I'm a white dude and had this album in 1981.I'd be blasting this full blast and the brothers would ask who it was...been a fan over 40 years. Morris Day is the coolest cat ever.
@Greg Rodriguez I know right 🤣
@Beth Walker That was not what my comment was about. SMDH.
The only song they sang here that was on that 1981 album in "Cool." "777-9311" was from their "What Time Is It?" album in 1982, and "Jungle Love" and "The Bird" were from their "Ice Cream Castles" album in 1984.
I am white and grew up in the Motown era and every white person I knew loved Motown. Charlie Pride was the first black person to be a country music star and now we have Darius Rucker, who is a member of the Grand Ol’ Opry.
Ethnicity has nothing to do with music taste.
It's good to see TI and Tiny having a great time, while celebrating this timeless group of Musicians.
Yes, they having!
Morris and Jerome doin it up!!!!
One of Prince's best creations for sure!
This is what timeless music looks like. This is what stage presence looks like - I hope I get to see them live
I've seen them live twice in Minneapolis needless to say being home brought out the best. Hope you get a chance to see them.
I’ve seen him live twice. I think he’s retiring soon so, if you see find out about any shows, try to go see Morris perform.
Dats why they need to bring Soul Train back. Cause the kids today don't dance anymore cause they got nothing to imulate. If U don't see nobody dancing U won't dance. Rap got these youngsters thinking if U singing you ah punk & U soft. Dats why U don't have many polished acts.
O I have seen them and they STILL put on a FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE!
I saw them live a few years ago they were awesome 😂
Saw Morris and the time in Hammond a few months back. Performance was stellar.And a grand tribute to Prince.Big ups Morris.
Don't sleep on the young ones in the crowd because I saw many of them singing the songs. Many of them know more old school than you think thanks to Utube, their parents or grandparents.....Shout out to Morris Day and The Time. What time is it!! ....Rest in peace to Prince❤❤
I caught that too, @teri. Everyone seemed to know the lyrics, regardless of age.
@FunPhonics with Miss Davis No problem. You're welcome.
Thank you for saying this. I'm 33 and a huge fan
I remember getting to see this group live at Essence Festival in the early 2000’s along with Prince. It was the best performance ever and I will never forget it. Am glad to see they still got it !
Jerome was the first and best hype man ever
Yes, he was!
Love this group.. can’t acknowledge The Time without acknowledging Prince.. those were great times in the clubs up North
Morris day showed them what entertainment looks like and turned the show out! 😃
Yes! and 64 years old…. Our people are something else…. WOW!
That's facts. I miss real music
Brings back memories of my mom taking me to see Purple Rain as a kid and I fell in love with Prince music and loved he let his R&B flag fly thru Morris and The Time. It made me become a musician and start producing.This is peak music for me and it’ll never get old.
Wish My mom would've took me to see purple rain, you got a good mom
@z t-ing yes she was!
ur mom is a good mom
Tengo 56 años,soy latino y estoy sonriendo y disfrutando esto como en mis mejores años de juventud cuando era un estudiante y miren a esas personas sonriendo y disfrutando como yo de la vieja escuela.Paz, saludos y agradecimientos desde Chile.
Ugggg!!! Bring the good fun music like this BACK, please!!!! I haven’t had this fun watching a performance in a LONG time!!! 💯🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
This also made me miss Prince all over again. 😢
They killed it 🔥🔥🔥 such a classic 🎶🥰🥰🥰🥰
Excellent performance!! Morris and Jerome still got it! Yes, Prince still lives on through his music 🎶🎼🎸
This brother will be 65 in early Dec.but , he moves like a 25 yr old ..... Makes me proud to be a senior citizen , keep the party going Morris , your the epitome of COOL !!
He is 66 this year! Actually today! I love Morris Day! 80sbaby here 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽
Hip replacement is amazing! Lol
The fact that Jerome didn't have a mic and we all know his name, speaks for itself. 🙌💯
Omg, loved every bit of it!!! Man, bring back so many memories when I was younger. Damn them was the good ole days
Real Music! They all look good. And they are still here with us no drama!!
I smiled through the entire performance! I love this music, brings back so many memories!!!
Yes, same with Xscape, even tho they were , 90s, group, classic nevertheless
An icon & true legend performing iconic, clean, fun music! Lawd take me back to the 80's!!!!
@CRYSTAL SWIRLZ Ikr!!!😂😂
@Sheree White let me know when u get that time machine up and running! Lol
@LaKara Childers 😂😂😂I know that's right!!!
Exactly! Hold the time machine open cause I'm coming with you back to the 80's!
The performance was excellent. Mr. Morris Day and the Time need to be honored in the rock n roll hall of fame. These legends deserve the Soul Train Legend Award. Don Cornelius would be proud. I hope they give it to the Whispers next.
Yes, I agree!! 💯💯
True i like to see the real time band all the first members all get in that movie purple rain as i watched it over great flick glad it was done at that time Prince showed the whole world how good he really was as he had all the actors in place and some funny stuff as well a part i liked was morris and Jerome was coming on the stage to perform they were about to walk up the steps ran into Prince and Morris said stick around let me show you how its done Jerome was helpping Prince close his jacket that Prince had on as to say leave i was like dam thats classic funny as hell
Absolutely you're right
Makes me wanna watch Purple Rain 💜💜💜💜 MD&TT are simply Timeless!! They're well into their 60's and still look cool 😎👌
This is how it's DONE!! BRAVO!!
Prince's music is just awesome and Morris and Jerome are such wonderful entertainers. I love them from the start and they are still the greatest. Great respect and love 👍👍👍
@Anthony Young omfg...u know JEROME? IM SO JEOLOUS! LOL
I know Jerome personally and he’s a cool cat. Countless great memories.
Jerome is a classic! that audience is getting the show of their life gb Morris Day thank you brother
This performance was fun to watch online so I know it must have been a blast to see it live. Morris Day and The Time always put on a great show.
He has so much swag. He barely moves his feet and still looks cool
@koolmoe1971 honestly for a 65 year old his moves are damn GREAT!! doesn't miss a single beat!
@vince wicks qq
@Myra Allen he's 65! He's not the young man that he was.
Because he IS COOL😂😂❤
Prince wrote a song about it like to hear it? Here it go 🎶"C O O L"🎶
When music WAS MUSIC And performers actually had stage presence. I'm and early 80s baby and remember my mother playing his music. He still got it and looks great! Wonderful performance. IYKYK!
That was soooo good. Morris don't seem like he has aged at all. Has not lost his touch. Has EVERYBODY dancing.
Wonderful performance from Morris and Jerome! Luv The Time forever🥰🎼👏🏾
Still looking fabulous, in shape, got moves and most of all still COOL! Time y’all slayed!!!❤️
I lost it when he did the bird call...he still got it
Mm They don't suffer from arthritis my started in my late 50 s
I love they are still performing. Look at what timeless music does for the culture. EVERYBODY was up on their feet, young/old, hood and bougie. This gave classic soul train vibes 🙌🏾
They do most of they're shows in clubs in Minneapolis.. on a regular basis I have a ball everytime I went to see them
The only band who make me smile as much as wanna dance.
This is REAL R&B!!!! Morris Day and The Time still has it after all these years.
I hope they gave MD & The Time $1 million for that performance. Not only was it live and rocked the crowed but it rocked most of those youngsters world!! I saw alot of them dancing but they really couldn’t comprehend what was happening.
Timeless and just good music 🎶 🎵
Morris Day, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Good memories 😎
They show this generation that they can still wing it! 😃
The tragedy is that Morris Day will call it a career soon. 😢
New generation, this is what Real R&B,Live Music look like. ❤️ Me some Moris Day & The Time!❤️❤️
Cause we got da funk!!!
@Regina Hamilton Thank you!!!
You are correct
Idk if they watching this one..,but its giving major swag vibes...like real swag
@steven Simmons lol
Morris Day and the Time rocked the house!!
Boy they bought back some memories
When Prince and Morris created the Minneapolis sound in the 80's and maybe in the late 70's. They created some of the best timeless great R&B music which will live on forever.
I'm so glad the Prince 💜 family allowed Morris day to use the Time again 🙌 keep in mind. Prince wrote,produced, arranged and performed All the instruments on the first two THE TIME albums
The approachness to the microphone! Can't get any better!
Love Morris Day, Jerome and the Time. Cool written by the iconic Prince Rest in Power.
@vemvem23 Yes that is Jerome looking great. I believe he has performed with the band most of the time they've been in existence. He's Terry Lewis' 1/2 brother and used to be prince's roommate early in their careers.
I was shocked that I remembered most of the words. Lol
@vemvem23 You should try and find their last album “Condensate.” It was made with all seven of them.
Nobody bothered with it when it came out.
I was wondering if that was Jerome…. I thought he retired…thought I remembered a difference guy doing his part in others performances
All those songs were written by Prince
I enjoyed this performance and glad to say I was a little boy when these guys were the talk of the town in the 1980s. I'm glad to have grown up to this music, watching my kinfolk dance to this wearing strange clothes and jheri curl hairdos! Morris Day and the Time forever Kings!!!!
NEVER GETS OLD I LOVE IT!!!
Me too and it's 4:48am for me right now 😅
They still got it baby! ❤❤
This is real music…real singer, real band, real entertainment!
WoooW! 👏👏👏👏 he showed up and showed OUT. STILL looks GOOD and always has the best performances. 🔥🥂🔥🥂🔥
Lordy, I got so full and teary-eyed watching this. I'm 63 and still doing the bird!! They were in their 20s when they came out and so was I. The nostalgia is real!! I still have their albums!🤩🤩
It fills your heart to know after everything we’re still here too.
I thought I was the only one with tears in her eyes - Took me to another time, place and space!!
Same here, my late husband and I danced to this and pilrdy the kids in the car to watch purple rain at the drive in. Wonderful memories.
Yes!!! Took me way back!
This Minneapolis sound is so timeless!
The times of the late 1980’s and 1990’s I love it!!!! The music is still played in the 2000’s! It will never DIE🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
This Performance Had Me UP🎼- 🎵🎵🎶🎶so proud to be from this generation of Talent and Cool Well Dressed Black Folks!! Talk about Memorable REAL GOOD TIMES AT THE CLUB - When men and women danced until they couldn't any more - shut the club down, exchanged phone numbers, maybe went to breakfast cause the chemistry was so damn fire and prepared for the next night... Thank You Morris Day & The Time❣❣💯💯💝💝
He don't even have to move he's so 🆒😎
There’s no better hype man in history than Jerome!
@pauledwdz That was still Jerome
…and background dancer!
BILLS MAFIA 4 LIFE 👍👍
Jerome left the band 2 years ago
I just turned 55 and I can't tell you how many times I've listened to Morris Day. This still jams after all these years
Morris and Jerome still got it 🎙🥰❤🔥🔥🔥
This awards show was really rewarding to watch. It honored people that truly deserved it. And I'm glad they received their flowers while still here. Every song that Chante, Morris Day and Xscape sung took me back to that time when music was music and people just enjoyed the music and had a good time. And best of all, they all sounded GOOD.
My whole childhood, go 'head Morris, Jerome 🔥🔥🔥
Such a fun performance. They sounded great and the crowd had a blast.
Oh the good ole days!
OMGGGGGG I was smiling through the entire thing!!!
@Holly Barker because we were kids when they were first popular, and now we’re getting ready to retire, that’s why!❤
Is it weird that I had tears in my eyes and was almost crying? I feel like an idiot but I don't know why this brought so much emotion up!! 🤣😭 Loved it!!!
Me too 😄😄😄 they was jammin and looking good.
Me too! 😁
Now that's how you do it! We love you Morris Day & The Time 💕🏆❤️
So So proud of Morris Day and The Time a group I've admire as a young man coming up playing the drums....The hold movement of Prince and the Revolution,Morris Day and The Time was Legendary..🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥❤️❤️❤️💜💜💜💜 Thank you guy's for all the great music it will never die...
My ERA!!!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥❤️❤️🎵🎵 WHOLE CONCERT!!!!🔥🔥🔥🔥NO OTHER GENERATION NOW TO THROW A PARTY 🎉🎉🎉👏🏽👏🏽🔥🔥🔥
The coolest old school group of my generation! Missed the old style sophistication of men. Great performance, Prince would have been proud. And they used their original stage name, awesome!
These guys are super cool and badasses. The performance is big epic ✨
Honestly one of the best live bands of all time. I pledge allegiance to the Time.
@James Pearson I hear ya, Bruh..Jimmy & Terry are busy running their label and producing, Monte is busy producing, Jesse went solo and is playing with Deangelo, Jellybean is doing his own records (he's been playing guitar and is pretty good. He has a song out called, "Renaissance" and Dr. Fink has a keyboard solo on it👍🏿😊). I do wish the original folks would get back together and do another album. It's been 11 years since "Condensate". Peace.
@SuperBass1964 exactly, the Original 7ven is who should have been there and been honored
Except the BAND wasn’t there.
What a great performance 👏🏾
Amazing performance. This brought back so many memories.
They literally Surpassed success and youth on all levels
I saw them perform in Atlantic City last year and they killed it. What a performance, these guys still got it. Morris don't age and he is handsome as ever
Living Legends. Live in color. The coolest band ever!!!! THEY KINGS CLASSIC. 💪💯🤴
THIS THAT FUNK!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥
All of it!!!!💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾
@Complete_ly_me You already know! ALL DAY
They still rock The Bird - true class and style from these old boys - music like this is timeless
Gotta love the 80s style dance moves!
Jerome is soo chill..love him
