I Will Always Love You – Whitney Houston
This song is one of my all-time favorite Whitney Houston songs so to hear Ailee belting the lyrics on “Immortal Songs” is a truly beautiful moment. Ailee shows her versatility and raw vocal talent as she brings everything she’s got to this performance. She truly proves that she’s a goddess in the industry and her legendary performance made this episode of “Immortal Songs” one of the most watched episodes in the show’s history.
If I Ain’t Got You – Alicia Keys
And now you meet another one of my favorite songs! Ailee has such a powerful voice and she brings a whole new level of sass to this song. She sings with so much passion and energy, it’s hard not to get taken in by her performance. Her runs and the growl in her voice gives me chills whenever I listen to her sing this; it quickly ended up on my list of essential live performances to watch!
Problem – Ariana Grande
Ailee shows that she’s more than just a ballad singer when she tackled Ariana Grande’s hit Problem. The choreo is fierce and she really brings out the sex appeal for this performance. I love the way she interacts with her dancers and her stage presence is absolutely amazing! Watching EXO jam is another bonus……when Ailee gets in the groove, your only option is to groove with her!
Versace on the Floor – Bruno Mars
Everyone knows Bruno Mars’ Versace on the Floor, yeah? Ailee put even more of an R&B twist on this hit and it really makes her cover stand out. Although I do have to admit, I’ve never actually heard the original song……only covers XD. I do really like her performance though; she puts such a unique twist on her covers and it really draws me in!
Are any of these your favorite Ailee English cover, or do you have another in mind? Let us know in the comments below!
