Christina Aguilera, Pharrell Williams, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine Tribute B.B. King in Song

Pop royalty Christina Aguilera joined forces with her The Voice team members Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Pharrell Williams for an epic tribute to the late B.B. King. The coaches performed the King of Blues singer's 1970's hit, "The Thrill Is Gone," originally written by West Coast blues musician Roy Hawkins and Rick Darnell in 1951. Each artist brought their own unique style and musicality to the forefront, making for a memorable The Voice finale.

As previously reported, King died in his sleep in Las Vegas last week at the age of 89. Before his passing, he battled with high blood pressure and diabetes, which he lived with for more than 20 years.

Born in Mississippi as Riley B King, King is considered to be one of the greatest guitarists of all time. In 1987, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. King also won 15 Grammy Awards, his last coming in 2009 for his album 'One Kind Favor.'

Aguilera also delivered some spot-on impressions of Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Sia, Shakira, Lady Gaga and more.

Gaga showed her love for the shorts, tweeting, "This is my favorite thing I've ever seen! @xtina I miss you and your sweet funny self!"
