Kim Kardashian has enough star power to freeze up any adoring fan. But the reality starlet faced some stage fright of her own when Prince called her up during a New York concert Monday night.

The singer told Kardashian to "get off the stage" during a Madison Square Garden show when she failed to groove along with him in the spotlight.

"OMG Prince just pulled me up on stage!!! I'm shaking!!!!" Kardashian tweeted from the concert, which she attended with her NBA boyfriend Kris Humphries and a couple of friends. "I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!"

Prince kept crowd roaring by bringing fans on stage and dancing with them.  The fashionable brunette, however, was not bringing it on as he shimmied around her in his sparkling glitter suit. He eventually pointed to the stairs.

The incident got much buzz on the blogoshpere. The Village Voice's Rob Harvilla commented that Prince accomplished in a few seconds "basically what American has been trying to do for years now."

But the Kardashian's 15 seconds of Prince-filled fame were not over. The pop legend called her up again and gave her a second chance.

"Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself!" she Tweeted again. "We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!"

Apparently, no celebrity is safe from the first row of Prince's "Welcome 2 America" tour. MTV reported that  a few weeks ago,  "Gossip Girl" starlet Leighton Meester was brought on stage.
