At Least They Didn't Play "Zombie"


On the reality dating show The Bachelorette, Jared and Kaitlyn visit Christchurch Cathedral in Dublin, where they are serenaded by Noel Hogan and Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries, who perform "Linger." The couple dance and make out as O'Riordan sings:

Were you lying all the time?
Was it just a game to you?

In America, where The Bachelorette airs, The Cranberries are by far the most popular Irish band apart from U2. They've been on hiatus since 2012, but O'Riordan and Hogan agree to re-form for the show, which has an audience of about 10 million viewers.

Jared gets a rose, but is eliminated the next week. As for The Cranberries, they go on tour in 2016 and release a new album, Something Else, the following year.
