Tori Kelly killed it Sunday at the 2015 MTV EMA Awards show with a kick-ass mashup of songs made famous by TLS, the Fugees and Mary J. Blige.
Needless to say, the singer can do it all, but she really showcased her incredible skills with her mashup of some of the best talent out there.

Wearing a gold pantsuit, blazer and rocking out like no other, Tori Kelly started her performance with a VMA-styled Should’ve Been Us, before breaking out some hardcore R&B with TLC’s No Scrubs, as reported by MTV.
Just when you thought the singer could not get any better, she broke out into Mary J. Blige’s Real Love and then the Fugees’ Ready or Not.

Still waters run deep in the breakout singer. after the success from her debut album, Unbreakable Smile, she made it perfectly clear that she has no plans of losing momentum. Her latest single Hollow, which she describes as “honest,” “vulnerable,” and “epic,” was recently released.
Written with musician, Zac Poor, the song is a testament to her relationship with God, says Tori Kelly.
As reported by Vibe magazine, the chorus chants, “I’m fragile and you know this/ So hold me, wrap me in love/ Fill up my cup/ Empty, and only your love could fill up my cup/ Because I’m hollow.” While all the lyrics seemingly mean a lot to the singer, Kelly admits that her favorite lyrics are “pour out your perfection on me now.”
So, did you all see Tori Kelly’s performance on the MTV EMA Awards show Sunday? She killed it, right?
