Brooke Simpson covered Pink’s “What About Us” for her Top 11 performance on “The Voice” on Monday. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, last week Simpson belted Kesha’s “Praying” for her first live performance of the NBC competition. She was the first to perform and received a standing ovation from all of the coaches. The response had the aspiring star in tears. Fortunately, viewers at home liked the performance, too, as they voted Simpson through to this week’s round.

And, interestingly, it was up to fans to suggest tonight’s song choices. For Simpson, that meant staying in vein of current pop music. “What About Us” was released in August as the lead single off Pink’s latest album, Beautiful Trauma. The track was well received by critics and hit number one on both the Billboard Adult Top 40 chart and the Dance Club Songs list. Now in the wake of Pink performing the song on several TV shows, it was time for Miley Cyrus’ artist to do her own rendition.

In rehearsal, it was revealed Cyrus and Simpson had actually been talking about covering “What About Us” for “months.” But to make it represent the contestant’s heritage, they decided to give it a “more native feel” with the drums. “I’m so looking forward to getting on that stage, probably more than any other song I’ve done,” Simpson admitted. The live performance actually kicked off with a drum circle, accompanied by the artist’s powerful pipes.

Afterward, Adam Levine said, “I’ve always loved you from the very beginning… I always enjoy watching how you kinda connect the material.” He praised Simpson for finding her own meaning in the song, adding, “Just more great stuff from you, Brooke.” Cyrus told viewers, “What y’all can really look forward to is Brooke’s record when she makes one. She’s got such an amazing ear.” She further said to Simpson, “It’s hard to make something your own, but you did it perfectly this week.” Check out the video below!
