A wannabe singer transforming a beloved pop song into a moody, acoustic ballad? Been there, done that. What Voice season 4 auditioner Christian Porter does to LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It,” though, is something different altogether. The only thing this cover shares with the original is its lyrics; otherwise, Porter’s take on “Sexy” is a bluesy, falsetto-tinged jam that seems tailor made to go viral. (For good reason: As commenters have pointed out, the performance seems to have been inspired by Noah Guthrie’s own acoustic “Sexy and I Know It.”) Prompting three of the competition’s four judges to turn their chairs around is a good start.

Check out Christian’s new spin on the electro-dance duo’s hit below — and tune in for more memorable blind auditions when The Voice returns on NBC March 25.
