VIDEO: Pistons Dancing Usher pays tribute to Prince


We're still reeling over the loss of Prince, and if there's one thing that makes us feel a bit better, it's dancing. We're not very good at it, so luckily we have the Pistons' infamous Dancing Usher to show us how it's done. 

A day after Prince's death, Shannon Sailes (aka the Dancing Usher) paid a special tribute to the iconic artist. Watch the video below and dance, it's what Prince would've wanted. 

You can also celebrate Prince with special screenings of Purple Rain happening this week
