Jessie J and Tom Bleasby duet Flashlight on Ellen DeGeneres
The Ellen DeGeneres really can make dreams come true. The segment that aired on Thursday’s show is another example.
The titular host brought Tom Bleasby, a 19-year-old Englishman — and X Factor U.K. contestant — to the show. He created a video with himself and pop star Jessie J belting “Flashlight” from Pitch Perfect 2, via the app Sing! Karaoke by Smule. (Their performance is used as an example in the Google Play Store.)
When given the stage to sing the song by himself, DeGeneres cuts him off. “We’re missing something. Something’s missing,” she says. Then, Jessie J is revealed from a sliding wall, slipping through to hug Bleasby and wing their performance without practice.
