Amber Riley & Naya Rivera Make It ‘Doo Wop’ What It Do For ‘Glee’

Amber+Riley+Naya+Rivera

Although I stopped watching Glee many seasons ago, I may tune in to tonight's episode to see Amber Riley and Naya Rivera sing Lauryn Hill's hit song "Doo Wop (That Thing)." Now, I consider Lauryn's original as a masterpiece that should just be left alone. If I hear the first "ooh-ooh-oooohs" on the radio, I only want to hear Ms. Hill singing them. However, Riley and Rivera hold their own on this remake. The cover is pretty safe with little to no alterations as the girls pass the mic and showcase their hip-hop flow. Naya sounds good and harmonizes well with the background doo wops. However, it's my girl Amber who really steals the song and owns it. Her delivery on the verses is right on target, matching Lauryn's cadence. I shouldn't be surprised at Amber's hidden rap skills because she's has definitely proven that she can do anything she sets her mind to. Take a listen to this version of "Doo Wop (That Thing)" below and let us know if you'll be tuning in, too.
