Stacy Francis Performs & Kills Prince’s “Purple Rain” On X Factor

Covering Prince is not the easiest thing to do, but Stacy Francis covered "Purple Rain" on X Factor pleasantly last night.

Nicole Sherzinger picked this song for Stacy, which was a ballsy call because, as I said, it is hard to cover Prince. She brought it. She has the vocals and in some places, she used her voice where it wasn't exactly needed, but it was great.

Many have tried to cover "Purple Rain" and failed.  Badly.  Yes, Leann Rimes, I'm talking about you.  Stacy is on to the next round.  No.  Doubt.  About. It.

Stacy Francis gets the funk pass.

Let's see; A Prince wannabe in the first few rounds of X Factor.  A former protegé auditioned.  Now, Stacy Francis covers "Purple Rain" by Prince.  3 Princely things in 4 weeks.  I am saying it again.  I will be surprised if we do not see Prince on X Factor sometime during this season.  & he knows it, I don't know Y.-DocFB

  7. So wait, do they take the contestants into the studio to record and then have them lip sync on the broadcast?

    Regardless she sounds good. Nicely done! Not an easy song to pull off.

  8. Absolutely loved Stacy’s cover of ‘Purple Rain”. She knocked it out the box!

  9. Hands down the best non-Prince version of P.R. I have EVER heard. That was a sonic boom!
