The Dancing Usher Pays Tribute To Prince During Pistons' Playoff Game [VIDEO]

By Dan Jenkins

Anyone who goes out to The Palace of Auburn Hills for a Detroit Pistons game knows that the Dancing Usher is quite a spectacle.

Shannon Sailes can bust a move with the best of them and proved so when his skills went viral in 2013.

Now -- with the Pistons hosting their first playoff game since 2009 -- Sailes took advantage of the spotlight to pay tribute to Prince, who passed away in Minnesota this week.

After starting his dance to MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This," the Dancing Usher took off his customary work polo to reveal a "R.I.P Prince" shirt.

The track then changes to Prince's "1999" and the crowd goes wild.

Unfortunately, the Pistons would go on to lose the game to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but good vibes were felt in that moment thanks to Detroit's own Dancing Usher.
