We can (almost) get those images of Kanye West rapping while floating through space out of our mind after hearing “Til Death” chanteuse Wynter Gordon singing an acoustic take on Katy Perry’s thumping sonic space odyssey “E.T. (Futuristic Lover).” The eternally-youthful songbird looked and sounded lovely crooning Kathy Beth Terry’s hit at a private event in Sydney yesterday — at least until she gives a playful alien-like lick to an audience member at the end of the song. See the live rendition after the jump, along with a performance of “Til Death” from the Aussie version of Dancing With The Stars.
While we never really envisioned “E.T.” as the kind of song that would translate well to a slowed-down love ballad, we have to say Wynter has surprised us, turning in gravity-defying vocals that probably surpass those on the original.
What do you think?
