In 2005, Canadian singer/songwriter Michael BublÃ© released the heartfelt hit “Home.” In it, he longingly sings about missing his partner while he’s on the road.
But in 2008, BublÃ© was invited to the “David Foster and Friends” concert at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas to sing his megahit… as a duet. Who in the world could possibly match his crooning vocals and jazzy vibe, though?
Well, you might recall that the song made such an impression on Blake Shelton that he covered the hit in 2007. His rendition reached the top of the American country singles charts.
So, when producers were putting together the lineup for the concert, it just made sense to pair these two hunky megastars for one of the most memorable duets ever.
Michael starts out singing solo, complete with a cheesy Southern twang. But the pianist just can’t stomach it and cuts him off. “Guess what?” he says. “You know … the guy that actually has a country hit with that song is here.”
Michael swivels around as if looking for somebody, “Is he really around?” he asks.
And that’s Blake’s cue. He emerges from the shadows, walking onto the stage with his own stool! He and Michael shake hands and get right into it, their powerful voices alternating verses with seamless precision. They’re so in sync, you’d almost think the song was meant to be performed as a duet!
The cutest part, however, has to be the two singers’ chemistry. They jokingly sing to one another as if they had written the tune for one another the entire time.
Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, and other artists of their caliber also performed at this once-in-a-lifetime concert, and while they all gave incredible performances, this song truly stands out. Check it out in the video below, and share with a music lover in your life.
