A number of people played Sting songs.
In front of Sting.
At the Polar Music Prize ceremony in 2017.
The camera flicks between the performer and Sting.
As he sits in the audience with his wife Trudie Styler.

Gregory and José
Gregory Porter covers ‘It’s Probably Me’.
And it’s pretty good.
José Feliciano covers perhaps Sting and the Police’s greatest tune, ‘Every Breath You Take’.
And it’s a bit shit.
It’s not good.
Anyhow, take a look if you have 10 minutes.
And by ‘look’ I mean look at Mr. Sumner’s face.
As he takes in both versions of his creations.
Sometimes, it’s tricky to hide how you really feel.
