Prince - New Girl

Music royalty Prince makes a guest appearance in a special episode of New Girl that originally aired after Fox Sports' coverage of Super Bowl XLVIII in February 2014. In the episode, Jess is ready to paint the town purple when a chance encounter finds her and Cece invited to a once-in-a-lifetime mansion party thrown by music legend Prince, guest-starring as himself. Not wanting to miss out on the fun, Nick, Schmidt, Winston and Coach are determined to crash the festivities, building toward an unforgettable ending. The special episode also features cameo appearances by Victoria Secrets' supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio and Ana Beatriz Barros and Los Angeles Dodger and Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw. The encore broadcast of the "Prince" episode of New Girl airs Tuesday, April 26 at 9:30pm (replacing an airing of The Grinder). Also on this night, Fox will air two original episodes of New Girl at its regular time of 8pm and at a special time of 9pm.
