It's a musical miracle!

Tori Kelly is just one of the many stars lending their voices to the upcoming film Sing, which follows a group of animals with big dreams who compete in a singing competition.

And to get us ready for the musical showdown, the Hollow songstress — who plays a timid teenage elephant in the animated film — showed off her tusks pipes after the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival!

Kelly took the stage with Jennifer Hudson, and the two belted out a powerful performance of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah that totally brought down the house.

ICYMI: Over 200 Musicians — Including Jennifer Hudson, R. Kelly, & Weezer — Defend Pharrell Against 'Dangerous' Blurred Lines Verdict!

Last week, it was reported that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke clapped back hard at that Blurred Lines lawsuit — appealing the verdict that they committed copyright infringement against Marvin Gaye's Got to Give It Up.

Throughout the drawn out court battle, the singers expressed the sentiment that paying homage to an earlier era and making a song reminiscent of a sound shouldn't fall under copyright infringement.

And it looks like a TON of musicians agree — because 212 artists, composers, and producers have filed a brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the bid by Williams, Thicke, and T.I. to overturn the decision.

Musicians from all corners of the industry have banded together to support the appeal, claiming that the Blurred Lines creators deserve victory on grounds that the court's ruling will set a precedent that will "stifle creativity" and "impede the creative process."

Among those who threw their names in the ring are the members of Train, Linkin Park, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Black Crowes, Fall Out Boy, as well as Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Hall & Oates' John Oates, R. Kelly, Hans Zimmer, Jennifer Hudson, Jean Baptiste, Evan Bogart and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse).

The artist's brief, penned by entertainment attorney Ed McPherson, states:

Be careful what you wish for…

As we pretty much already suspected, it sounds like Ariana Grande is paving her way back to Broadway now that she's made her mark on the music industry.

That's because while promoting Hairspray Live! at the Television Critics Association press tour on Tuesday, Penny Pingleton herself flat out said participating in the NBC musical was "way much more fun" than her pop star career!

How does this keep happening?!

Hollywood is the place where dreams come true, and Adam Sandler has proved that theory yet again by landing Jennifer Hudson as yet ANOTHER incredibly hot love interest in his next flick!

Sandy Wexler is the third flick in the SNL alum's Netflix deal and will follow the funnyman's character of a '90s talent manager who falls in love with an aspiring singer (Hudson) he finds at an amusement park!

While we're extremely happy to see Hudson doing a bit of comedy, we STILL can't believe all the incredibly hot women Adam has cast opposite himself in his movies over the years — Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, and even Salma Hayek. WOWZA!
