Kim Kardashian says she will 'always remember' the moment she joined Prince on stage as video goes viral

A video of Kim Kardashian being sent off stage by Prince has resurfaced following the legendary musician's death earlier this week. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shared a photo of the evening on social media, and revealed that Prince sent her away because she was 'so star struck.'

Back in 2011, Kim attended Prince's Welcome 2 Tour concert in New York City. The Purple Rain artist invited the reality show star on stage after looking for an audience member to dance with.


Prince told the star to get off the stage

However once onstage, Kim looked less than enthused, with her nerves getting the best of her as she stood in one spot clapping. Prince told her to "get off the stage." He jokingly added: "Welcome to America."

Following Prince's death earlier this week, Kim responded to fans who rediscovered the video. Tweeting a photo of the two smiling on stage together, she wrote: "I will always remember this moment with one of my favorite artists! I was so star struck I froze! RIP Prince."

The legendary singer passed away aged 57

At the time, Kim tweeted: "I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!!!!". Luckily for North West's mum, the music icon gave her a second chance to redeem herself and she succeeded. Kim tweeted later that evening: "Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself! We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!".


Prince was found dead in his Minnesota residence on 21 April, and stars have taken to social media to share memories and pay tribute to the late singer.

Beyonce led the tributes, sharing a photo of Prince with a quote that reads: ""Everyone has their own experience. That's why we are here, to go through our experience, to learn, to go down those paths and eventually you may have gone down so many paths and learned so much that you don't have to come back again." Meanwhile, Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood wrote: "I will miss a good friend who was so talented. He was such a great performer/guitar player. Sleep well Prince."
