After the parody performance of "Bad", Brandon Quintin Adams as Young Michael asks his assistant what his pet monkey Bubbles is wearing, to which he responds "He's wearing a Prince t-shirt and red sneakers". Young Michael says "A Prince T-shirt?" in a confused sarcastic tone, referencing the long great debate on Michael Jackson versus Prince.
