Who doesn’t love when their favorite singers cover a popular ’80s song? Last week, country duo Sugarland and singer/songwriter Sara Bareilles performed ‘Come On Eileen,’ as part of their show at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.

Bareilles is currently touring with Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, who make up the bubbly country duo.

The Dexy’s Midnight Runner hit definitely got the crowd going, especially after the singers added a country twist when Nettles and Bareilles busted out some hoe-down style dancing. Bareilles’ ultra-soothing voice and Nettles’ twang also added some cache to the song. Known for their great performances, Sugarland and Bareilles created an even bigger party on stage and in the crowd by singing an old-school classic.

Both Nettles and Bareilles rocked out to the song as if it was their own. Maybe the singers will collaborate on an upcoming album? Pretty sure fans wouldn’t argue with that!
