The main event for Prince adoration at the 2017 Grammy Awards was Bruno Mars' sparkling performance, but there were other tributes.

One of the most visible came from Blue Ivy Carter, daughter of Beyonce and Jay Z, who wore a pink version of the suit that the departed Minneapolis star made famous three decades ago.

Complete with ruffled white shirt, the 5-year-old cut a figure while cheering for her mother, who performed "Sandcastles" and "Love Drought" and won Best Urban Contemporary Album for Lemonade and Best Music Video for "Formation."

Google Pixel's ad that aired after the Bruno Mars performance was also a purple remembrance.

The commercial features a wealth of artists – including Sampha, Brandi Carlile, and more – covering Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U."
