Watch 'The Voice' Coaches Combine Their Talent To Cover A '90s Classic

This is a must-watch.

The Voice is back for its 12th season tonight on NBC. To get us hyped for the big return, the show released a video of this season's coaches (Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Gwen Stefani) performing an amazing cover of TLC's 1995 hit "Waterfalls."

This performance is all the proof you need that, no matter whose team they end up joining, the show's talented contestants are in good hands. The coaches take turns delivering solos that show off their own individual styles (and, in a few cases, their instrumental ability — with Blake and Adam on guitar, and Alicia on, well, the keys), and then combine their talent for the song's chorus. Alicia and Gwen even do a bit of rapping halfway through. The performance is made that much better by the coaches' easygoing rapport with each other, complete with ad-libs and supportive glances.

In addition to being a great collaboration, it's also a powerful song choice. "Waterfalls" brought attention to issues such as the illegal drug trade and the HIV/AIDS crisis, with a music video that highlighted its socially conscious message. It spent seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won Video of the Year at the MTV VMAs in 1995, the first time a non-White artist or group won the award.
