Prince Does Surprise Performance At iHeartradio W/Mary J. Blige Of “Sweet Thing” & “Nothing Compares 2 U” Watch Now!

PRINCE performed with Mary J. Blige tonight at the Iheartradio festival in Las Vegas. They performed “Sweet Thing” and “Nothing Compares 2 U” and brought the crowd to its knees. Prince’s performance was a surprise but it leaked…ahem….online hours before they were to take the stage.

Prince was sporting his futuristic glasses that look like a sleeping mask with a multicolored shirt and rocking the yellow paints. That really was a great and soulful performance of “Nothing Compares 2 U” they did.

They put on the screen during the performance #iHeartPRINCE to trend on Twitter but all #teamFUNK members already do heart Prince regardless.

    Thank you so so much for posting! I loved it and I’m loving his hair. Good job MJB also.

    Excellent,…… and I will give him credit on the fact he is FULLY committed to the “Futuristic Fantasy” concept with the outfit & Guitar. There has to be an Album Right around the Corner…. it has that feel anyway….

    OK, so now, I’ve seen the entire clip on a large screen through my system’s four speakers…

    This is top notch. Prince is in rare form, all the way. The theme between the shirt and guitar suggests something ahead.

    His voice in unbelievable. Love the tone of that Vox guitar.

    The crowd went ballistic when he came on. He looked healthy and happy.


  4. He sounds phenomenal and plays even better. I am a forever fan. It was a surprise to see him with Mary. I thank you for posting this so quickly. Vegas misses him.

    HOw cool is that?

    He needs to lose those glasses though – even if they grow on you after a while

    i bet the glasses are so he doesn’t have to worry about flash photography anymore and if someone takes his picture without permission, all they get is him with the funny glasses

  9. Sorry Hump. Wish I had the time to do that. I’m sure someone did and it will be available soon. All will be forgiven and forgotten by the time we post something on him again. 🙂

  10. To me the audio is the most important.. how about next time the opportunity arrises, record the audio with audacity and edit it in with the video?

    Well, I love MaryJ but “Sweet Thing” just belongs to Chaka! She did a good job, though, and having Prince sing backup and play didn’t hurt, now did it? [Waiting for “Nothing Compares…” which rates VERY high on my favorite Prince stuff. It had BETTER be good! ;-)]
