Prince takes in The View

The ladies of The View got quite a surprise when music superstar Prince showed up during their Hot Topics segment.

The ladies of The View are seldom stunned and always composed, but not during a recent episode where they got a visit from a star of princely proportions. During an episode of The View, Prince casually walked onto the stage during the show's Hot Topic segment -- creating total shock!

Okay, it wasn't a total surprise to everyone. It turns out, Whoopi Goldberg received a call from Prince wanting to promote his upcoming Madison Square Garden shows. He wanted to keep his appearance hush-hush from the other ladies -- aside from the all-knowing Barbara Walters. Of course, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd were all floored -- and you can see it on their faces. Sherri Shepherd could barely contain her school-girl crush, asking Prince to say, "I love you, Sherri."

On that sweet little note, Prince had an exciting gift for each of the co-hosts. Prince gave the ladies tickets to get down and do some dancing at his December 18 concert at Madison Square Garden. We wonder if Sherri Shepherd will don a raspberry beret in support of her life-long crush.

Check out our clip of Prince rendering the chatty ladies of The View speechless. It was pretty funny and will probably never happen again.
