Dia Frampton's Rendition of Kanye West's Heartless on

Dia Frampton delivers a stripped down version of Kanye West’s “Heartbreaker,” on last night’s episode of “The Voice.”

The singer played the piano as she performed a unique and haunting ballad version of the pop hit. Somehow she made a Kanye song sound like a singer/songwriter original and the result was awesome.

The judges praised her performance. Cee Lo said, “Kanye would be proud,” and Adam Levine called it, “The most refreshing, unique thing I’ve seen on this show so far.”

Frampton is on Team Blake Shelton and her coach said of her performance, “For the first time, America has gotten to see Dia Frampton do what Dia Frampton does.”

What he was referring to was Frampton’s brilliant collection of covers on her youtube channel. Frampton performs in a band with her sister, “Meg and Dia,” and the singer has several covers of popular songs by artist such as Mumford & Sons, Taylor Swift, Adele, and Neon Trees on youtube.

What did you think of the performance?
