Ellie Goulding can usually do no wrong in the Idolator office but she might have bitten off a little more than she can chew by covering Justin Timberlake‘s “Mirrors” for BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge. It’s not a bad performance by any means. The “Burn” diva sounds great but her high-pitched vocal is just a little too cutesy for a song that demands a certain amount of soul.
It’s still interesting to watch the super-talented Brit take on someone else’s material. Her superb cover of “How Long Will I Love You” is proof that she gets it absolutely right more often than not. Watch Ellie channel her inner-JT above.
