Prince must enjoy singing "Nothing Compares 2 U" as a duet. On Tuesday, three nights after performing the song with Mary J. Blige at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, the veteran pop star played the classic with Jennifer Hudson.

Hudson joined Prince on stage, halfway through the concert, the second day of his "Welcome To Chicago" run at the city's United Center.

Looking stunning in a figure-fitting gold dress, Hudson channeled Aretha Franklin's husky vocals as she went toe-to-toe with the icon, moving him to bow and blow kisses in her direction. As an elevator lowered her below the stage after their rendition, Prince noted his approval. "Chicago, I think we good now," he said.
