Last week, Cleveland teen Emyrson Flora went viral for her jaw-dropping Hollywood round performance on American Idol, taking on Adele‘s “Love In The Dark,” which appeared on Adele’s global hit album 25, from 2015.

In her pre-recorded intro, the 16-year-old high school student recounted how the judges took a chance on her, and how she wanted to repay that faith. She delivered tone-perfect effort that had judge Katy Perry on her feet, and Flora was sent straight to the “Duets” round.

Flora is hardly the first Idol contestant to perform an Adele cover. For years, the talented musicians who have appeared on the show have put their own twists on the Grammy winner’s beloved tracks, from “Rolling in the Deep” and “Hello” to “When We Were Young.”
