Bryce and Blake Shelton kick off the night with a performance of Blake’s own song “Hillbilly Bone.” Blake and the 22-year-old singer have amazing chemistry onstage together. This is one epic country duet! Next, OneRepublic takes the stage for a performance of “I Ain’t Worried.”

Ahead of their performance, John Legend says he is “constantly amazed and inspired by Omar.” They perform a sensational rendition of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.” Omar easily holds his own singing alongside the EGOT winner.

American Idol alum Adam Lambert stuns with a gorgeous performance of “Ordinary World” dedicated to the victims of the Colorado Springs shooting. This incredible cover of the Duran Duran song will be featured on Adam’s upcoming album High Drama. The album is Adam’s first covers album and will be released on February 24, 2023.

Bodie can truly do anything.
