Purple Rain performed on X Factor UK Final with LINK

Just a heads up that Purple Rain was just performed by Matt Terry (contestant) and Nicole Sherzinger.

Was pretty good, on Nicole's behalf. Nicole got the audience singing at points and seemed emotional at the end slightly.

I dont like these reality shows and Prince didnt like people covering his music, but this is one of the ways of keeping his legacy alive.

After witnessing this, I really do think that prince was murdered. Or at least Purple Rain was.

I object to this being posted on a fan site and will be writing to the prime minister about it.

There are only two people in the world capable of doing this song justice. Prince was one of them. The other is neither nicole sherzinger nor the guy she's singing with.

Nicole can sing, but that was a shocking version. And the guy is in the final? Mister Charisma himself...

Whatever people may think about it. Yes, it's publicity for Prince and any current or forthcoming releases.

Sure Matt Terry is not exactly the one that should have done it and yeah Mr Charisma. Saara Aalto would have been better but hey, it's done now.

This is really funny!

She is supposed to be suppoting the contestant, but she didn't even give him a chance - or any mic or screen time!

.

Well that young lad is terrible indeed.

In the end he won (unfortunately) I believe it to be Nicole & his version of Purple Rain that turned it around for him. Looking at social media afterwards of the general public, they loved it.
