The Maroon 5 frontman paid tribute to his season six mentee Christina Grimmie with a moving performance of The Beatles‘ Hey Jude, and he sung “every word to her in her honor.”
Levine honored the late singer, who was shot and killed at after her concert last June, with his current team — Jesse Larson, Lilli Passero and Mark Isaiah — as they took the stage on Tuesday’s episode.
Making things even more emotional was Grimmie’s family in the audience, whom the rockstar addressed before belting out the ballad in her honor.
Grab some tissues and watch the heartfelt performance (below):
