Absolutely brilliant choice, given that Ellen DeGeneres’ character can never remember a thing. Kudos to whoever picked “Unforgettable.” Irony at its best.

Sia gives the classic 1952 Irving Gordon-penned tune, made famous by Nat King Cole, a somewhat haunting makeover. The Aussie songstress premiered the track with a live performance, fittingly enough, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The 41-year-old powerhouse wore her signature bow and two-toned wig, paired with a puffy dress. The styling was actually quite perfect. She looked ready for the ocean, serving pufferfish realness.

Check out her rousing rendition below. Finding Dory swims into theaters on June 17.

Celine Dion Covers Queen For New Single

In: Donovan, Music

When it was announced that Celine Dion would be performing the classic Queen anthem “The Show Must Go On” at this weekend’s Billboard Music Awards, I found it a little odd. Especially given the fact Britney Spears was performing a medley of her greatest hits. Why wasn’t Celine doing a medley as well since both ladies are set to receive special Billboard Awards, Icon Award and Millennium Award respectively. Today though, it all makes sense.

The 48-year-old chanteuse just released a studio version of the Queen ballad. And as you would expect, Dion absolutely slays with her powerful vocals. No doubt the single has special meaning to Celine, since she continued her Las Vegas residency after losing both her husband and brother within a couple of days. The show definitely did go on.

Check out the track below where she’s accompanied by violinist Lindsey Stirling.

Someone’s a little fired up. Demi Lovato gives the disco classic a really angsty hell hath no fury like a woman scorned-type of vibe. I wonder what she was thinking when she sang “I Will Survive” in the recording studio. Was Wilmer Valderrama in the doghouse 😉

The 23-year-old singer’s cover of the 1978 Gloria Gaynor anthem is for the Angry Birds Movie soundtrack. Also featured on the compilation LP are Blake Shelton, Charli XCX, Imagine Dragons and 80s sensation Rick Astley. Check out Lovato’s version below.

The upcoming Angry Birds Movie features a star-studded cast which includes Blake Shelton, Peter Dinklage, Kate McKinnon, Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, Josh Gad, Maya Rudolph, Tituss Burgess and Demi Lovato. The latter will not only lend her voice but will also share her talents for the accompanying soundtrack.

The 23-year-old pop star takes on Gloria Gaynor’s iconic disco anthem “I Will Survive.” Based on the minute-long preview, she does an respectable job. Other artists appearing on the soundtrack include Shelton, Charli XCX, Imagine Dragons and 80s sensation Rick Astley. Check out Lovato’s version below.

Jason Derulo Teams Up With Pentatonix For Killer Cover

There are no words. This cover is absolutely fantastic.

The a cappella sensation that is Pentatonix enlisted Jason Derulo to cover Shai’s epic slow jam, “If I Ever Fall In Love.” Love, love, love the original. Thankfully, they do the track justice.

They stay pretty true to the original stripped-down version but add a pop sensibility. Their powerhouse vocals are on full display. Absolute slayage.

For the accompanying visual, the quintet dress in all white with Derulo doing the same but adding a pop of color with a tomato-red blazer. Check out the clip below, along with the original visual by Shai.

Fifth Harmony Covers Elle King’s Ex’s & Oh’s

Absolute slayage. That’s all there is to say about Fifth Harmony during their appearance at BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. The ladies not only rocked one performance but two.

The quintet first delivered a bare bones rendition of their first Top 10 hit, “Work From Home.” Dare I say, I actually prefer this version than the official radio release. Mostly because Lauren gets to shine. Exactly why she doesn’t get more solos is beyond puzzling.

Next up was a soulful cover of Elle King’s breakout hit, “Ex’s & Oh’s.” They displayed some killer bluesy runs not usually showcased on their pop-urban tracks. Camilla was a standout. She gave me tingles. Check out both performances below.

London-based house DJ Sigala interpolates “Always Be My Baby” by Mariah Carey for his current single “Say You Do.” If you haven’t checked out the tropical house jam, definitely do. It’s perfect to listen to while lounging poolside.

During a stop on BBC Radio’s Live 1 Lounge, Katy B starts off covering Sigala’s single before transitioning into a soulful rendition of the Carey classic. The 26-year-old songbird does the diva justice, even showing off some full-on diva arm movements. Check it out below.

Carrie Underwood Covers ‘I Will Always Love You’

Before I get to her killer cover, can we just talk about how Carrie Underwood hasn’t made an appearance on American Idol this season yet? Fantasia, Ruben Studdard, Chris Daughtry, Jordin Sparks and the OG Idol, Kelly Clarkson, have all stopped by for the singing competition’s farewell season. Fingers crossed the 33-year-old country superstar is scheduled to appear on the finale. It wouldn’t be a proper send-off if one of the show’s biggest discoveries didn’t appear.

During an appearance on the Bobby Bones Show, Carrie delivered a stellar cover of “I Will Always Love You.” It’s a hybrid of the sweet original composition sung by Dolly Parton and the rousing rendition by Whitney Houston. Her sweet and powerful version is truly fantastic. Check it out below.

PS. Happy Birthday Carrie. She turns 33 today on March 10.
