I love her! They should have asked her to do the duet instead...

I really like that. Wow.

It makes me realize two things, however. The first being how awesome of a song it could have ended up being, if they made it without Rihanna. The second, being the song really sounds better with a duet of some kind.

I wouldn't replace Rihanna with anyone else, the song was for her in mind and her vocals suited the style. Kelly has stunning vocals but that would have been way too much power to mesh with Chris on the record.

Agreed.

Though I have to say I really am stunned by this cover. What a voice, and, it's different, but at least as good as the original, imo. In a way, she found depth in a song that may sound a bit shallow for a Coldplay song. Well done!

I find this is better than the P.O.C live with Rihanna. I bet that Coldplay ft Kelly will have a better live version :D

Lovely cover, she's a great singer (much better than Rihanna).
But yeah, it works better as a duet. I miss Chris' voice. Actually, this naked version made me realize how boring POC is on it's own and that the only thing I like about it is his voice. :confused:

Umm, now I'll feel weird saying that I don't like it :confused: I don't like Kelly's style of singing, I feel like I'm listening to a country song. She has a good voice, though. But now I understand why Princess was meant as a duet - it gets quite boring the other way.

As unexpected as it is even for myself, I prefer Rihanna.
