I would think the stream would stay up after it's finished.

The TFI Friday version made me think of that song in a way I hadn’t before. The crowd was visibly moved (well, Richard and Judy were) and I remember an interview with Chris Martin praising it years later.

This rendition was the complete opposite and just James shouting.

That version sets an extremely high bar to clear though and it's at least 20 years too late to make the attempt.
