Sinéad O’Connor made a welcome return to the stage last Friday night with a chilling performance of her most famous song - which she once vowed to never to play live again.

Taking to the stage for the first time in five years during an appearance on Ireland's The Late Late Show, the 52-year-old belted out 'Nothing Compares 2 U'.

And, boy, has she still got it!

The Irish singer-songwriter - who dedicated the song to Prince, who famously wrote the iconic hit - was backed up by her own band and the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

O’Connor herself seemed to enjoy the performance, taking to Twitter to write: "Thank you SO much to Ryan and to absolutely everyone at RTE and The Late Late Show and in the orchestra and band. I had the best day and night.... and thank you for the beautiful flowers also. And big thanks to my glorious big sister for coming along.

"Wanna say thanks so much for all the love and support received on twitter over the weekend."
