WASHINGTON (The Washington Post) — With the digital universe continuously crying out for our exponentially divided attention, we are living in hyperbolic times. So it’s good to be reminded what The Best Thing Ever truly looks, sounds, shimmies, shakes and shrieks like.

That would be Prince. He gave two separate shows at Washington’s relatively cozy Warner Theatre on Sunday night, and burned so much energy during his first hundred minutes on stage, it’s hard to imagine what he did for the second set. (Social media gloaters/rejoicers say he brought Stevie Wonder out onstage for a jam around 1 a.m.)

And according to a more elite level of Twitter braggarts, Wonder and Prince had performed together on Saturday night, too — at a private party on the South Lawn of the White House. Prince confirmed it on Sunday at the Warner, offering his warmest words for the First Family. “They were very cool to us and I hope you’re proud of them because we are,” he said. “They’re doing the best they can.”
