Prince Re-Visits Nothing Compares 2 U Twice In One Week, With Special Guest: Jennifer Hudson!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJennifer HudsonPrince

Two INCREDIBLE performances by Prince - each featuring him alongside a lady with powerhouse vocals - in one week?!

We couldn't have foreseen this in our wildest dreams!

But yes, it has happened!

The Purple One made a surprise appearance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival Saturday night when he joined Mary J. Blige on set to perform the self-penned Nothing Compares 2 U, but this past Tuesday, during his Welcome 2 Chicago show in the windy city, it was HE who enlisted the help of a special guest to accompany his rendition of the same track!

And who better to belt out his re-interpretated, funk-a-licious version of the former Sinéad O'Connor smash than Chi-Town native Jennifer Hudson?!

Ch-ch-check out the pair KILLING it (above)!

Gah! AH-Mazing!

We could listen to these two together all day!

What do U guys think? Who performed the song better - JHud or Mary J?!

    Nothing compares to Sinead O'Connor singing that song. I know Prince wrote it, but Sinead's interpretation is unsurpassable.

    Originally by Prince, Sinead O'Connor remade it fyi.

    This video doesn't do it justice. We were there on Tuesday, and it was an ah-mazing show!

    bummed to miss this but couldnt bring myself to buy another ticket after what he did to his fans on Monday at United Center and HOB. Prince is an a**hole

    Perez, don't you know this is a Prince song? He is not reinterpreting anything…

    @airbells I went to all three shows at the United Center and I do not know what Prince "did to his fans" at the UC on Monday other than put on a really good show. It wasn't as great as Tuesday and Wednesday, but it was still a better show than most of the people out there today. There were sound issues that prevented him from playing guitar on Monday. That was the only thing missing from the show. Other than that, what problem did you have with it? The encore that some people missed wasn't an official encore. Prince was ready to go to HOB but so many fans stayed that he came out and did two more songs after having the band play an instrumental. Time ran out at HOB, and that sucked. However, he made up for it by offering a complimentary ticket to Wednesday's show to anyone who purchased a ticket for the HOB on Monday. I already had tix for the UC, so I got my tix and gave them to some people who absolutely loved Wednesday's show.

    I would love to see him perform it with Sinead. No one, even Prince has been able to put so much heart and feeling into that song since her. Prince even said it himself.

    Idc if he wrote it or not he butchered it. Nothing compares to Sinead's version!
