'Pitch Perfect' Stars Team Up With 'The Voice' Contestants For An Aca-Amazing Mash-Up

"Cups" plus George Michael's "Freedom! '90" = epic.

In true Bellas tradition, the ladies of Pitch Perfect gifted us with yet another aca-awesome mash-up — only this time they have teamed up with the top 12 contestants from season 13 of The Voice. Together, they all covered a classic from the movie series as well as a pop mega-hit.


The crew covers the Pitch Perfect fan-favorite "Cups" song and, to take it to that next level, add in George Michael's quintessential "Freedom! '90." Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, and Hailee Steinfeld — along with the rest of the Bellas, minus Rebel Wilson — proved that they still have it going on. Plus, this collaboration gave the Voice hopefuls a moment to shine.

The 12 contestants featured from The Voice include Ashland Craft, Janice Freeman, and Brooke Simpson from Team Miley Cyrus; Davon Fleming, Shi'Ann Jones, and Noah Mac from Team Jennifer Hudson; Addison Agen, Adam Cunningham, and Jon Mero from Team Adam Levine; and Chloe Kohanski, Red Marlow, and Keisha Renee from Team Blake Shelton. It's good they had this moment before they're narrowed down to this season's big winner.

While "Cups" has been famous ever since the first Pitch Perfect movie in 2012, "Freedom! '90" came out in, well, 1990 and was written, produced, and sang by Michael. It's off the pop star's Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 album and peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It's David Fincher-directed music video — which features top models Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, and Christy Turlington — is super iconic.

At least we have The Voice to watch to hold us over until Pitch Perfect 3 — the last in the trilogy — hits big screens on December 22, just in time for the holiday season.
