    Looks
    Prince (Both can be so wrong... But in the 80s all Prince's looks were absolutely great from Dirty Mind to Parade especially)

    Talent
    Prince (composer, song-writer, multi-instrumentist, singer, showman...)

    Stage Presence
    Prince (saw them both - no debate)

    Dancing Skills
    Michael (No debate)

    Music
    Prince (quantity and quality. No debate even if I love Michael)

    Personality
    Prince

    Music Videos
    Michael

    Impact
    I should say Michael cause his is more obvious but I will say both as I think that Prince had probably a greater impact on the musical community (musical influence, support of other artists and - I don't know how to word it - issues tied to artistic business model)

    Prince in everything but dancing and videos.

    Impact? Prince can shred so he wins.

    I do not consider this relevant. But probably Jackson.

    Everyone is going for prince for looks. I thought MJ was more handsome when he still looked like an African american man with Afro or Jerry curls.

    MJ was a song writer and composer like Prince. it's not fair when this is ignored. it's like mariah carey, who writers and compose most of her songs but it is not really talked about because she was such a great singer.

    Prince. He never did any of the crazy stuff to himself that Michael had done.

    Prince. When Eric Clapton said Prince was a better guitarist than him, that spoke volumes.

    Michael, hands down. No one will EVER be able to top "Thriller".

    Stage Presence
    Unknown. Never saw either onstage.

    Michael by a mile.

    Before plastic surgery, pretty even. After plastic surgery, Prince (and most of the rest of the world) wins by a mile.

    Prince was a major heavyweight songwriter, and kept reinventing himself over the years. In that respect he's up there with David Bowie - and hardly anyone else.

    Michael Jackson just did Michael Jackson over and over. Rather than reinventing himself he because a parody of himself.

    Prince's impact is subtler than Jackson's, but I think it is bigger.
