You might remember coming across a video on YouTube about three months ago that became viral within days, hitting one million views after one week. Berklee students Emily Luther and Charlie Puth teamed up to perform Adele’s “Someone Like You” in an Adele cover contest. After winning the contest, the two internet stars skyrocketed to fame, their YouTube video hitting 8 million views in three months.
Once Ellen DeGeneres heard the duo sing together, she was automatically impressed. Not only were Emily and Charlie invited to perform on her show in late October, but were also signed to Ellen’s record label, eleveneleven. Tonight, the two upcoming stars will make another appearance on Ellen’s stage to perform “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum.
Emily and Charlie were on national television Wednesday night. Check out the attached video footage!
