Little Mix's Perrie Edwards Covers Beyoncé's 'Listen': Watch

Attempting to cover a Beyoncé song is no easy task, but Perrie Edwards of Little Mix recorded an impromptu take on one of Queen B's inspirational ballads—and she did an amazing job.

Perrie has been touring with the British girl group in Australia and will continue to do so behind Get Weird, Little Mix's 2015 full-length, but she took a break from the grind to give Bey's "Listen" a shot. The song was a single off the Dreamgirls soundtrack and was nominated for an Oscar back when it was released, so naturally it's a doozy and a challenge to tackle.

Not for Perrie. We know that Little Mix are into the laid-back/sleepover-friendly aesthetic lately, so Perrie's rocking no makeup and slippers in a moment of downtime as she sings through the track. There's nothing chill about her high-notes whatsoever, however, as this—gasp!—holds up to Bey's original quite nicely.

Check out Perrie's cover of "Listen" above, then watch Little Mix answer whether they'd want Beyoncé's body or her bank account:
