it's good to see she's come out of the shit of the last few years pretty well.

i know she's a bit of a basket case, but i'm always rooting for her and still
enjoy both her old and new music a lot.

genuinely happy to see her doing well cool

Just: Wow! I just love this woman and am glad that she broke the promise to never perform this song again. I know it is unpopular to sayt this, but: She owns this song (in my opinion).

Thanx for pointing out this performance, peppeken!

I'm with you. After the crazy stuff she's said about Prince, I'd rather not ever hear her sing this song again.

A certain kind of mellow.

oh shit, the amount of shady shit you lot forgive prince for, yet a bipolar woman
who obviously had a bad experience with prince (regardless of how much she's
exaggerated or contorted the tale over the years), we should stay mad at. right.

I detest her singing of that song. She can't even sing the actual lyrics.

Prince:
"It's been seven hours and 13 days"

and
"I know that living with me, baby, was some kind of hard"


SOC:
"It's been seven hours and "15 days"
and
'I know that living with you baby was sometimes hard"

Sinead is singing about her hatred for her mother; Prince is singing about women in his life (Sandy Shipione, Susannah, others).

Has she ever apologized for all the ridiculous hurtful slander following Prince’s death?

I was 'done' with her after she said that Prince was getting drugs from Arsenio Hall.That is obviously a vicious lie disbelief Some things you can't forgive.

Agreed! She was a one hit wonder and said some horrible lies about Prince and Arsenio. Fuck her!

Yep, couldn't have said it better myself. Anyway, Sinead absolutely knocked it out of the park here and this is one of the most emotional performances I've ever heard/seen of this song. As wonderful as the original Prince version is, this really has been her song for a long time, even if she didn't write it.

I'm glad to see her looking healthy and I've always loved her singing this song.


She's had some mental problems for sure.


Nobody seems to have a problem when it's the Rev and the Time, Family, NPG, so on, so on, so on, and so forth.


Sinead isn't 1 of my fav peeps, but she ranks above the 1's mentioned^^, to me.

Her passionate singing and the orchestra makes it better than her plodding recorded version, but I find her take on this great song just too shouty. The Family and Prince's various versions are way way better, but unfortunately it's always gonna be her cover that we'll here on TV and radio sad

What a beautiful smile she gave us at the end of a very courageous and well-done performance. Thanks, Sinead, for bringing this song back to life. Much love.

I think she had some things going on at the time. Depression is a very painful thing. I don’t think Prince would want us to be angry at her for that.

There's just a lot of Prince fans who are never going to like her and never have. People were slagging her off on here since day one, years before she said anything about Arsenio Hall.

I believe she converted to Islam. Even if she didn't, Prince can wear assless trousers but a head scarf is a no-no? Who cares.

Love it! Glad she can still sing as well. She was always an odd bird - honest, ballsy, and seemed completely unafraid of having everyone hate her (sometimes it was almost like she was daring you to hate her), but the talent always shone through.

I believe something fucked up went down between Prince and her that night, whatever the true details are, and that he was capable of treating someone like absolute garbage, but could also be your biggest friend and supporter. Personalities are complex, and often contradictory, and I think that certainly applies to both Prince and Sinead.

I wonder if fans of Joan Osbourne have the same issue with Prince changing the lyrics to "one of us"?
