Performing a strong rendition of “Reflection” from the Disney film Mulan, Nicole Scherzinger wore an exquisite blue gown and captivated the audience during the Coronation Concert for King Charles III and Queen Camilla.

With the legendary pianist “Lang Lang” on piano, Nicole gave a voice workshop to an audience of 20,000 people, including hundreds of famous people and officials from throughout the world. With over 2.6 million views in under a year, her breathtaking performance has gone viral on YouTube and shows no signs of slowing down.

The X Factor competition in 2016 saw Matt Terry as its winner. Finding the most promising young musicians in the United Kingdom and pitting them against one another in a blind talent search for the title of #1 and the chance to realize their musical aspirations is the goal of the popular talent show. Even more was on the way for Matt Terry, though, as he was granted permission to play Prince’s classic “Purple Rain” with Nicole Scherzinger during his final performance.

“Purple Rain” is a delicate yet strong song, and Matt Terry’s powerful and smooth voice was the perfect choice to cover it. Although Prince was an exceptional individual who is very difficult to imitate, Terry performed an excellent job of covering this distinctive and timeless ballad. But when Nicole Scherzinger stepped onto the stage in a breathtaking gown and contributed her wonderful voice to a planned and dramatic duet, the song took on an altogether new meaning. Check out the video below to see the performance:

As his first performance demonstrates, Matt Terry can hold his own in a crowd, but the song really takes off when Scherzinger joins in. Additionally, confetti flies as this new music sensation is formally created via The X Factor, the stage and screen lighting becoming more dramatic, and a heavy purple glow fills the entire Wembley Arena. Neither the audience nor Terry himself were aware that he would end up winning the show that year at that moment.

Nicole Scherzinger is a multi-talented artist who has accomplished much beyond her role as a judge on The X Factor. She is a phenomenally talented singer-songwriter, dancer, and actress. Being a member of the iconic pop/dance group The Pussycat Dolls—one of the all-time best-selling female music groups—may have brought her the greatest fame. Nicole Scherzinger has put out a number of critically acclaimed studio albums following the band’s 2010 breakup and subsequent 2019 reunion, all of which were released in 2021.

Afterwards, host Dermot O’Leary went up to Nicole Scherzinger and Matt Terry to find out how Terry was doing. “That was just incredible, to sing with Nicole Scherzinger… at Wembley”; he was surprised by the incredible opportunity and the applause. Terry must have been having the time of his life as he thanked the audience for giving him this opportunity, his voice hardly audible through what must have been the highlight of his youth.

Among the many hits by the late, legendary American musician, producer, and songwriter Prince, “Purple Rain” stands out. He was also one of the most accomplished musicians of his day and dabbled in acting and dancing in addition to his many appearances in film and television. In addition to his groundbreaking music, Prince gained immense fame for his colorful and androgynous persona. He was a one-stop-shop for entertainment with enormous influence because to his superb songs.
