Remember Rebecca Black? She gained Internet fame back in 2011 with her viral hit “Friday.” She reemerged a couple of years ago with a couple of solid tracks. One of them, “The Great Divide,” even managed to land on the Billboard US Dance chart.
The now 20-year-old singer popped up on the Season 2 premiere of FOX’s singing competition, The Four: Battle for Stardom. She first sang a sensational cover of NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” which earned three yeses from the judges- DJ Khaled, Megan Trainor and Diddy. She then performed a rendition of “Torn” by Natalie Imbruglia during a battle challenge.
Truthfully, she sounded great. Had she picked a different challenger, she probably would’ve won. James Graham was simply too sensational with this killer rendition of Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You.” Serious goosebumps on my end. You might recognize Graham. He was a member of the band Stereo Kicks which finished fifth on The X Factor during the eleventh season in 2014.
Check out Black and Graham’s performances below.
