The singers used an acoustic arrangement to slow down the song and combined their folksy and bluesy vocals to reinvent the song. During the song star Jennifer Hudson yelled “Sing it girl” and Miley Cyrus exclaims “Damn! They are so good.”
Karli Webster impressed Cyrus initially with her version of Carly Simon’s “Your so Vain” and Adison Agen was put through with her astounding rendition of Ray LaMontagne’s song “Jolene”. One thing we know for sure is that though these talented singers may be battling as individuals now, they gave us a beautiful and unforgettable singing moment.
