“Nothing Compares 2U” by Sinead O’Connor (1990)
Sinead O’Connor’s emotional Prince cover went down in history as one of the most moving and impassioned performances of all time. The video mainly consists of a close-up shot of O’Connor’s devastated face. Toward the end, two real tears stream down her cheeks. The video earned three VMAs in 1990, including the title of Video of the Year.
