It’s one of Little Big Town’s best songs, but Adam Lambert and Leona Lewis made ‘Girl Crush’ totally their own at the CMT Artists of The Year 2015 ceremony! The unlikely duo honored the band with a gorgeous performance of the smash hit.
They’re not country singers, but Adam Lambert and Leona Lewis should definitely think about switching genres! The two powerhouse singers took on Little Big Town’s gorgeous ballad “Girl Crush,” proving why the band deserves to be one of the CMT Artists of The Year. That song is so beautiful! The duo took to the stage at the awards ceremony on December 2, and stunned us all!
Adam an Leona made “Girl Crush” just as smooth and sexy as when Little Big Town sings it, but added their own flair. Both dressed to the nines in dressy black outfits, Adam looking dapper and Leona, effortlessly cool with long, blonde braids, it was incredible to behold. Like all the performances this night, the band that they were paying tribute to was the most important facet of their show. Nothing flashy about their set, just dim lighting and some background fog. Lovely! You can CLICK HERE to buy “Girl Crush!”
You know that “Girl Crush” is an amazing song when Martina McBride calls it a “fantastic success!” Only two of the members of Little Big Town, Karen Fairchild and Phillip Sweet, were at the celebration to accept their award and take in the performance, because Kimberly Schlapman and Jimi Westbrook were at home dealing with the tragic death of his sister, Joyce, who passed away from cancer just three days before the ceremony. “This is for you, Joyce,” Karen said before Adam and Leona took the stage. What a beautiful, moving tribute.
