Thirty-three years ago, pop megastar George Michael teamed up with the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, to release their one-off duet 'I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)'.

And now Adam Lambert has put his own spin on the hit song with the help of British actress Cynthia Erivo - and we are loving it!

Performing the song as part of the star-studded 2020 Carousel of Hope Ball - which raises funds for clinical care and diabetes research at the Barbara Davis Centre For Diabetes - the duo did the iconic song justice with their beautiful harmonies.

And even though Lambert and Erivo couldn't be in the same room, their performance still had a fun '80s feel and a few touching nods to the original music video.

Erivo portrays Aretha in the upcoming season of National Geographic's series Genius.
