"Saturday Night Live" honored Prince with a special episode Saturday night.

In the episode, titled "Goodnight, Sweet Prince," Jimmy Fallon – who was wearing a purple tie – paid special tribute to the legendary artist.

Fallon called Prince a "special presence" on "Saturday Night Live" for the past four decades.

"Other people may have been on the show more times, or performed more frequently, but there was something different about a Prince performance. It was special. It was an event. It was Prince," Fallon said. "Times have changed, styles have come and gone, but no matter what, Prince has never not been cool."

The show featured performances by Prince that ranged from his first appearance in 1981 to last year – a never-before-seen performance during an after party following the show's 40th anniversary special, NBC says.
