Tom’s fellow judges looked on in amazement as the singer belted out the lyrics to the 1961 hit, “Cry To Me” by Solomon Burke. The song was initially featured in the iconic movie Dirty Dancing. At its time of release, “Cry To Me” peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard and spent twelve weeks on the charts. 

You can listen to Burke’s version of the song in the clip from Dirty Dancing below. 

Olly Murs, Will.i.am, and newcomer Anne-Marie exchanged glances as Tom’s rendition of “Cry To Me” captivated the audience. Several viral listeners danced or swayed along to the tune of Tom’s powerful performance.
